HC Deb 26 April 2002 vol 384 c481W
Mrs. Brooke

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many young people aged under 18 have been released from prison with no fixed abode in each year since 1998; and from which prisons. [49981]

Beverley Hughes

Information on the accommodation of prisoners after release is not recorded centrally for all prisoners. However a survey of prisoners' resettlement has recently been carried out for the Prison Service. This involved interviews with a representative sample of about 2000 prisoners shortly before discharge. It will provide information about the proportion reporting in the last two-three weeks of sentence that they have no accommodation to go to on release. Results will be available shortly.
