The Ministry of Justice holds data on the number of prisoners convicted of (a) rape and (b) other sexual offences who were held in a category D open prison in each year between 1997 and 2010. This can be viewed in the attached table. The required dates for PQ135716 (between 2007 and 2010) are a subset of the data required for PQ135715 and so are contained within the same attachment.

For prisoners serving indeterminate sentences, the data requested to answer question 3 is not held as it pre-dates current casework systems which came into use in 2010.
