To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many offenders aged between 18 and 20 from the London Borough of Haringey have been held in (a) young offender institutions, (b) local prisons and (c) other parts of the secure estate in each month since May 2009.

All young offenders serving sentences of DYOI are held in appropriately designated YOI accommodation within the prison estate. The majority of this accommodation is in dedicated YOIs, although some establishments in the estate have a dual designation (designated both as a prison and a YOI) and hold both adult prisoners and young offenders.

The following table shows the number of offenders aged 18 to 20-years-old with a recorded residential address or proxy in the London borough of Haringey who were held in predominant function male young offender institutions, predominant function male local prisons and other prisons (including female prisons) on a set day in each month where data are available since May 2009.

Number and location of male and female young adult offenders (aged 18 to 20) originating from London borough of Haringey
Location May 2009 September 2010 November 2010 January 2011 March 2011 May 2011 July 2011 September 2011 November 2011
(a) Male young offender institutions 89 76 76 73 70 62 75 87 104
(b) Male local prisons 5 <5 <5 <5 <5 11 7 12 5
(c) Other prisons (including female prisons) 6 13 10 11 20 18 17 19 16

These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems, which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.

Information on offenders' residences is provided by offenders on reception into prison and recorded on a central IT system. Addresses can include a home address, an address to which offenders intend to return on discharge or next of kin address and these figures are provided in the table above.

If no address is given, an offender's committal court address is used as a proxy for the area in which they are resident. These figures are also included in the table above. No address has been recorded and no court information is available for around 3% of all offenders, these figures are excluded from the table above.
