The information requested is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. To provide this information, a manual search of the record of every female prisoner held at New Hall during 2017 would be required.

We currently do not record the number of women who give birth in prisons centrally but consideration will be given on recording this information locally on prison systems.
