To ask Her Majesty's Government what percentage of women in prison are re-offenders in (1) England, and (2) Wales; and of those, what percentage are in prison for non-violent crimes.
As of 30 June 2016, 78% of adult women in prison under immediate custodial sentence had a previous conviction or caution.
This data is published and can be found in table A1.19 here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/633160/population-2017.xlsx
The information in the table refers to prisoners in both England and Wales, however please note there are no women’s prisons in Wales.
Regarding what percentage of women with a previous conviction are incarcerated for non-violent crimes, the information requested could only be obtained at a disproportionate cost.
