HMP Channing Wood: Parole

Volume 467: debated on Tuesday 13 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the (a) convicted offences and (b) nationalities were of the 34 people who received early releases since June 2007 from Channing Wood Prison, Denbury, South Devon. (163484)

It is not possible to determine the precise offence for each of the 34 prisoners released on ECL since 29 June 2007 from Channings Wood without incurring disproportionate cost. In this case individual case records at the establishment would need to be checked. We do not currently publish nationality as part of the ECL report.

Foreign national prisoners who are liable to deportation at the end of their sentence are not eligible for release under the End of Custody Licence scheme. On average nationally some 6 per cent. of prisoners released on ECL are foreign nationals who did not meet the criteria for deportation.
