The Ministry of Justice Court Proceedings Database holds information on defendants proceeded against, found guilty and sentenced for criminal offences in England and Wales. This database holds information on offences provided by the statutes under which proceedings are brought but not the specific circumstances of each case. It is not possible to identify from this centrally held information the nationality of offenders sentenced for criminal offences.

However, the best alternative for these figures are the prison statistics in the following table, which presents the number of sentenced receptions into custody of non-UK EU nationals between 2008 and 2012 in England. There were no receptions of non-UK EU nationals into prisons in Bassetlaw constituency between 2008 and 2012.

It is Government policy to extend or negotiate compulsory prisoner transfer agreements with other countries.

We have voluntary prisoner transfer agreements with more than 100 countries, allowing prisoners to serve their sentences in their home countries.

EU sentenced receptions, sentences of two years or more, 2008-2012, England
2008 658
2009 776
2010 (July to December)(1) 412
2011 822
2012 928
(1) Data for January to June 2010 is not available
