Open Prisons

Philip Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) how many offenders serving life sentences were held in open prisons in each of the last 20 years; [201999]

(2) how many offenders convicted of murder were held in open prisons in each of the last 20 years. [202001]

Jeremy Wright: It is not possible to provide the total number of offenders serving life sentences who were held in open prisons in each of the last 20 years, or the total number of offenders convicted of murder who were held in open prisons in each of the last 20 years, without incurring disproportionate cost.
