Cheryl Gillan (Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, Wales; Chesham and Amersham, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many prisoners who completed or commenced the 12 step drug rehabilitation programme in Swansea prison have been charged with further drug-related offences after their release from prison.
David Hanson (Minister of State, Ministry of Justice; Delyn, Labour)
The information requested is not available. There is no effective tracking mechanism in place. The tracking of an individual who has engaged with treatment interventions and subsequently went on to re-offend would involve the use of the police national computer and this would constitute a breach of confidentiality.
