HC Deb 28 February 2001 vol 363 c709W
Ms Kelly

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent research his Department has undertaken into the relationship between the prison where a sentence is served and the incidence of the individual concerned being convicted of a crime once he or she has served the original sentence. [151537]

Mr. Boateng

The latest research into reconviction rates following discharge from prison was published in chapter 9 of Prison Statistics England and Wales 1999, Cm 4805, a copy of which is available in the Library.

Since a prisoner can move between a number of prisons during his or her sentence, from the data centrally held it is not possible to establish a relationship between the prison establishments where an inmate served any part of their sentence and convictions once the original sentence has been served.
