To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what proportion of BME adults in UK prisons have previously been imprisoned in youth offending institutions, by (a) age, (b) sex and (c) ethnicity; and if he will make a statement.
Answered by Andrew Selous MP on 13 January 2015
It is not possible to identify the number of BME adult prisoners in England and Wales who have previously been held in a Young Offender Institution. This information could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
