Mr. Mayhew

The information available on terminations of after-care administered by the probation and aftercare service, by type of after-care, is published annually in "Probation and after-care statistics, England and Wales" (table 46 of the issue for 1980), a copy of which is in the Library of the House. Corresponding information for 1981 will be published later this year. Information of those released on parole and recalled from parole is published annually in the "Report of the Parole Board" (paragraphs 28 to 34 of the report for 1981). Reliable information is not available on those recalled from other types of licence.
