To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prisoners refused parole and released on their non parole release date in each of the past five years were subsequently (a) recalled to prison before their sentence expiry date and (b) reconvicted after their sentence expiry date for (i) firearms offences, (ii) drugs offences, (iii) violent crimes, (iv) theft and burglary and (v) other offences.

Table 10.8 of the Offender Management Caseload Statistics 2004, a copy of which is in the Library of the House, shows the number of recalls of determinate sentence prisoners serving sentences of four years or more. To break the figure down further in respect of offence type would incur disproportionate costs. Reconvictions of offenders after their sentence expiry date are not held centrally and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
