The release data for December 2019 is planned for publication in April 2020. The publication in July 2020 will include the data for January 2020.

It is not possible to state the number of future releases by date because of the many factors affecting release date that can take place following sentence, such as added days awarded on prison disciplinary hearings, time spent unlawfully at large after escapes/absconds, appeals against the sentence, and further sentences imposed concurrently or consecutively.
