The number of FNOs deported under the Early Removal Scheme (ERS) has increased under this Government. In 2013, we removed nearly 2,000 FNOs under ERS and under the Tariff Expired Removal Scheme (TERS), which we introduced in May 2012, we have removed 237 FNOs to date.</p><p>Whereas this Government has begun to reduce the foreign national population in prison since 2010, between 1997 and 2010, the number of foreign nationals in our prisons more than doubled.</p>

The category of prisoner at time of release in error is not recorded in incident reports and live data shows details of the current security category only; it has therefore only been possible to provide the category of those who are currently unlawfully at large (table 3). Prisoners held in immigration removal centres are not subject to security categorisation. Over 97% of prisoners who abscond are re-captured and returned to custody.

This information is accurate as of 4 March 2014.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Table 1 Number of prisoners not subsequently returned to custody following release in error from prison between May 2010 and September 2013, by category</strong></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Category</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Category C</p></td><td><p>13</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Female (Closed)</p></td><td><p>3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Uncategorised</p></td><td><p>8</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>It is important to note that not all prisoners released in error will be unlawfully at large and subject to recall. For example, they may be unconvicted prisoners released in error whose cases have been concluded since their release without a custodial sentence.</p><p> </p><p><em>These figures have been drawn from live administrative data systems which may be amended at any time. Although care is taken when processing and analysing the returns, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. </em></p><p> </p><p><em>The number of releases in error may change should further incidents be reported.</em></p><p> </p><p>The number of absconds has come down sharply from a level of 947 in 2002-3 to 204 in 2012-13.</p><p> </p><p>Table 2 provides a breakdown of the number of absconds, by month between May 2010 and March 2013. Table 3 shows the number of absconders still unlawfully at large, by category, having absconded between May 2010 and March 2013. It is not possible to provide details of absconds by category of prisoner. The category of prisoner at time of release in error is not recorded in incident reports and live data shows details of the current security category only; it has therefore only been possible to provide the category of those who are currently unlawfully at large (table 3). Prisoners held in immigration removal centres are not subject to security categorisation. Over 97% of prisoners who abscond are re-captured and returned to custody. On re-capture the prisoner will be returned to a closed prison and referred to the police for consideration for prosecution for having been unlawfully at large.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>Table 2 Number of absconds between May 2010 and March 2013, by month </strong></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Month</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number of absconds</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>May 10</p></td><td><p>23</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>June 10</p></td><td><p>21</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>July 10</p></td><td><p>17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>August 10</p></td><td><p>25</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>September 10</p></td><td><p>28</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>October 10</p></td><td><p>17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>November 10</p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>December 10</p></td><td><p>23</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>January 11</p></td><td><p>11</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>February 11</p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>March 11</p></td><td><p>14</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>April 11</p></td><td><p>8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>May 11</p></td><td><p>12</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>June 11</p></td><td><p>16</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>July 11</p></td><td><p>13</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>August 11</p></td><td><p>17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>September 11</p></td><td><p>16</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>October 11</p></td><td><p>19</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>November 11</p></td><td><p>16</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>December 11</p></td><td><p>17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>January 12</p></td><td><p>9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>February 12</p></td><td><p>12</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>March 12</p></td><td><p>20</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>April 12</p></td><td><p>21</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>May 12</p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>June 12</p></td><td><p>17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>July 12</p></td><td><p>20</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>August 12</p></td><td><p>23</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>September 12</p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>October 12</p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>November 12</p></td><td><p>12</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>December 12</p></td><td><p>20</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>January 13</p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>February 13</p></td><td><p>16</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>March 13</p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Table 3 Number of prisoners unlawfully at large following abscond between May 2010 and March 2013, by category</strong></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Category</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>D</p></td><td><p>16</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Not categorised</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><em>These figures have been drawn from live administrative data systems which may be amended at any time.

The majority of escorts take place without incident and escapes whilst in transit are rare; there have been 10 since May 2010.
