To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to the Prison population projections: 2021 to 2026, published on 25 November 2021, whether those projections account for any projected increase in the number of people given a short determinate sentence who are immediately released from prison following sentence as a result of time served on remand.

To a certain degree the prison population projection incorporates extended time spent remanded in custody. For example, the modelling accounts for lower volumes of offenders starting determinate sentences, due to increased numbers serving the custodial part of their sentence on remand.
