Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government when they expect to publish the preliminary findings of their research on ex-service personnel in prison. [HL1254]

We aim to have initial findings on the proportion of veterans among the prison population and their spread across establishments in England and Wales later this year. Research would follow this on the nature of veterans offending and the factors that might have contributed.
