Holding answer received on 20 November 2015

At the end of June 2015, the proportion of people held in immigration detention who were foreign national offenders was 25% (884).

It is not possible to provide a break-down of foreign national offenders convicted of immigration offences and foreign national offenders convicted of non-immigration offences. Such data is not aggregated in national reporting systems, which would mean these questions could only be answered through a disproportionately expensive manual case search to collate the data.

Does this answer the above question?
