To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bellamy on 30 November 2022 (HL3458), how many of those people were serving an extended determinate sentence with a custodial tariff of (1) six months or less, (2) more than six months but less than 12 months, (3) more than 12 months but less than two years, (4) more than two years but less than four years, (5) more than four years but less than six years, (6) more than six years but less than 10 years, and (7) more than 10 years.
The table below sets out the minimum terms of imprisonment (custodial tariffs) of prisoners serving an extended determinate sentence (EDS) who are eligible for release via parole as part of their EDS, who were released after their first parole review in each of the last five years in which full data is available.
Six months or less
More than six months to less than twelve months
From twelve months to less than two years
From two years to less than four years
From four years to less than six years
From six years to less than ten years
Ten years or more
Data sources and quality:
1. Some prisoners were released without accessing the parole process because they were deported or, exceptionally, left prison following early release on compassionate grounds
2. Some parole hearings were not completed as a result of the prisoner receiving a new sentence or being transferred to secure hospital under the Mental Health Act 1983.
3. Total figures in the table do not match published total releases for EDS offenders, as some EDS offenders are not eligible for release via parole as part of their EDS.
4. The figures in this table have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large-scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.
5. Disclosure control: An asterisk (*) has been used to suppress values of one or two. This is to prevent the disclosure of individual information. Further suppression may be applied where needed.
