Crimes of Violence: Essex

Volume 494: debated on Thursday 18 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people in (a) Essex and (b) Castle Point convicted of serious violent offences and who served sentences of under two years duration re-offended in each of the last five years. (279282)

The requested information is not available. The data sets compiled by the Ministry of Justice to analyse reoffending by adults and juveniles do not enable reoffending rates to be calculated at this level of detail. Although data have recently been published on reoffending at a local level these data cannot be broken down by sentence length or offence type and so cannot be used to answer this question.

The available data on local reoffending can be found at
