S5W-02117: Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 23 August 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how many people are serving at least 12 months in custody in young offender institutions, broken down by (a) offence and (b) age.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 7 September 2016

I have asked Colin McConnell, Chief Executive of the Scottish Prison Service, to respond. His response is as follows: There are currently 203 young offenders in custody within the SPS estate who are serving at least 12 months.

(a) The following table shows the breakdown of young offenders by offence.

It should be noted that a number of young offenders will have been convicted for more than one offence so the totals for the offence table will be greater than the number of individual young offenders.
