asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the prison population of England and Wales on (a) 15 March and (b) the most recent available date.

I regret that information relating to 15 March is not readily available. On 14 March 1980 the population was 44,626 (42,980 male, 1,646 female). On 18 April the population was 43,960 (42,391 male, 1,569 female).
