HC Deb 16 January 1995 vol 252 c337W
Mr. Byers

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many category A and category B risk prisoners have been reclassified as category C risk for each year since 1979.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

[holding answer 13 January 1995]: Responsibility for this matter has been delegated to the Director General of the Prison Service, who has been asked to arrange for a reply to be given.

Letter from Derek Lewis to Mr. Stephen Byers, dated 16 January 1995: The Home Secretary has asked me to reply to your recent Question about the number of category A and B prisoners who have been re-classified as category C for each year since 1979. It is not possible for a category A prisoner to be directly regraded to category C. Re-categorisations from B to C are the responsibility for local establishments and no central records are kept. I regret that the information requested is not available.
