HC Deb 07 December 1994 vol 251 c233W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what continuing treatment and counselling facilities are available in north-west England for those convicted of child abuse but now released into the community.

Mr. Nicholas Baker

Area probation services run a range of programmes for those convicted of a sexual offence who have been sentenced to a community sentence or who are undergoing a period of supervision following their release from custody.

Participation in such programmes may be made a condition of release on licence, as may attendance on a psychologist, psychiatrist or medical practitioner. Information about individual service provision is not kept centrally.
