I regret that it is not yet possible to answer this question, because we have recently found that some indeterminate sentences for public protection may have been wrongly recorded as determinate. This may require amendments to the published data. I will write to the Hon Member with updated figures when they are available, and ensure that the next issue of data includes corrected figures.

Does this answer the above question?
