I have been asked to reply.

Figures provided by the electronic monitoring provider Group four Securicor show that at the end of February 2007 a total of 156 offenders were being monitored in the post-code areas which most closely correspond with Durham. And of these 15 were located in the post-code areas which most closely correspond with Easington.
