Volume 494: debated on Thursday 18 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many serious further offence reviews were carried out in (a) England and Wales and (b) London in 2008-09. (280184)

The figures for serious further offence reviews for 2008-09 will be published in the Offender Management Caseload Statistics on 31 July 2009. As the published statistics do not contain a breakdown by individual probation area, I will provide the hon. Gentleman with the figures for London, once the national figures have been published.

The most recent statistics available show that, between 1 April 2007 and 31 March 2008, there were 1,252 reviews carried out by probation areas in England and Wales, in cases which were initially notified to the National Offender Management Service. The corresponding figure for London was 165.
