The number of release decisions made by the Parole Board in each of the last three financial years can be found, by type of sentence, in the board’s 2012-13 annual report which is located at:

The number of prisoners released, in each financial year, will be slightly different from the figures cited in the report as, if a release decision is made late in a financial year, the actual release from prison may occur early in the following financial year.
