To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many registered sex offenders there are in the UK; how many people on the Violent and Sex Offenders Register have committed sexual offences against children; and what the reoffending rate is for people on that register who have committed such offences in the latest period for which figures are available.

Figures for the number of registered sex offenders in the UK are contained in the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements Annual Report, published by the Ministry of Justice. This includes MAPPA-eligible offenders who have been

charged with a serious further offence. The report covering the period from April 2013 to March 2014 is available on the website. The Home Office does not hold data on the number of registered sex offenders who have committed

sexual offences against children.
