To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, pursuant to the Answer of 9 November 2020 to Question 111584 on Remand in Custody: Community Orders, how many people are on remand for breach of community orders, by nationality.
I refer the Hon. Member to the previous response to PQ 111584.
Offenders who fail to comply with the requirements of their orders can be returned to court for breach of their community orders. As a sanction, the courts can then amend the CO so as to impose more onerous requirements or revoke the order and resentence. In some instances, where an offender has breached his community order, a magistrates court may commit him to custody until he can be brought or appear before the Crown Court.
Information relating to the number of offenders who are committed to custody for breaching a CO could only be obtained at a disproportionate cost.
