Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the local (a) adult and (b) juvenile reoffending rate was in each (i) London borough and (ii) upper tier local authority in the latest year for which information is available; and if he will make a statement. (264643)

The published national statistics on adult and juvenile reoffending are not broken down by area.

Published data on local adult reoffending in all upper tier local authorities in England and Wales (including all London boroughs) are available at:

http://www.justice.gov.uk/docs/local-adult-reoffending-oct07-sept08.pdf

These data include all offenders on the probation caseload and cover reoffending over the period 1 October 2007 to 30 September 2008.

Reoffending of juveniles at the local level is measured on a different basis to adults at the local level. The areas used are not coterminous with local authorities.
