To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many remand prisoners were held in police cells on 1 November; and if he will make a statement.

On 1 November, a total of 1,044 prisoners, the majority of whom were remand prisoners, were held in police cells. It is not possible to identify separately a precise total for the number of remand prisoners because at the time in question this information was not available centrally for all police areas.
