§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many women they expect will benefit from their plans for early release from prison of non-violent offenders. [HL1357]
§ Lord Williams of Mostyn
Most female prisoners serving sentences of three months or over but under four years will be eligible to be considered for the new home detention curfew scheme. No prisoner will be placed on home detention curfew unless they pass the risk assessment. From 28 January to 4 March, 130 female prisoners were placed on home detention curfew.
