Prisoners Release

Volume 462: debated on Thursday 28 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice what measures will be put in place to monitor those prisoners who will be released early from prison. (146056)

Prisoners who are subject to supervision on release (all prisoners serving 12 months or more and prisoners under 22 years of age) will be required to meet their probation officer after release on the end of custody licence (ECL) and to have regular contact after that in line with their supervision programme.

All prisoners released under the end of custody licence will be liable to recall if they are reported to have broken the terms of licence.
