star this property answer text <p>It is for the independent Parole Board to review the detention of those prisoners serving an IPP sentence who have completed their tariff period. The Board will direct the release of these prisoners only if it is satisfied that the levels of risk posed to the general public are reduced enough that the National Probation Service and its partner agencies can safely manage them in the community under supervision.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst HM Prison and Probation Service is focused on giving all prisoners serving IPP sentences opportunities to progress towards release, public protection must remain our priority.</p><p> </p><p>The information you ask for is available in the public domain; however, I have provided it below for ease of reference.</p><p> </p><p>The following table provides the number of first releases from IPP sentences in each of the last 5 years:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2015<strong>[1]</strong></strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2016</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2017</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2018</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Releases</p></td><td><p>419</p></td><td><p>562</p></td><td><p>576</p></td><td><p>616</p></td><td><p>506</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>[1] Due to improvements in IT systems, the 2015 prison admissions data is now taken from a different source and, for statistical reporting purposes only, are produced using a different method. The 2015 figures from both the old and new systems have been presented to aid comparison.</p><p> </p><p>The following table provides the number of offenders recalled from IPP licences in each of the last 5 years. It should be noted that these are incidences of recall and that offenders may appear more than once if they have been recalled on multiple occasions. It should also be noted that the recall and release numbers in each corresponding year do not necessarily relate to the same individuals.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2015</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2016</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2017</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2018</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Recalls</p></td><td><p>96[2]</p></td><td><p>363</p></td><td><p>482</p></td><td><p>492</p></td><td><p>637</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>2 Published data for IPP recalls was not collated separately to other types of indeterminate sentence prior to September 2014, and so can only be provided at disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The following table shows the population of prisoners serving IPP sentences who have never been released as at the end of March each year since 2012:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>31 March 2012</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>31 Mar 2013</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>31 Mar 2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>31 Mar 2015</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>31 Mar 2016</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>31 Mar 2017</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>31 Mar 2018</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>31 March 2019</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>6,017</p></td><td><p>5,809</p></td><td><p>5,206</p></td><td><p>4,756</p></td><td><p>4,133</p></td><td><p>3,528</p></td><td><p>2,884</p></td><td><p>2,403</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>As with any large-scale recording system, administrative IT systems are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
