§ Mr. Ashdown
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prisoners were released on parole licence in 1984; and what percentage of those were recalled.
§ Mr. Mellor
I regret the information is not available in the form requested. The number of inmates granted parole in 1984 was 11,886. The number of licences revoked in the same year was 512, but a proportion of these will have been in cases where a prisoner was released on licence before 1984.
