Prisoners: Females

Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 20 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice how many women (a) are being held in UK prisons and (b) were being held in each year since 2000. (141412)

[pursuant to the reply, 11 June 2007, Official Report, c. 888W]: I erroneously informed my right hon. Friend that the number of female prisoners at 30 April this year was 4,502. The figure should in fact have read 4,370.

The reason for the error is that the final figure included categories not consistent with the rest of the figures.
