HC Deb 26 July 1982 vol 28 c346W
Mr. Dubs

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his policy on the recall of prisoners subject to licence; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mayhew

Each case is considered on its merits having regard to the relevant statutory provisions, the circumstances which have raised the question of recall, any recommendation by the supervising officer, and criteria such as the degree of risk to the public if the prisoner were not recalled.
