star this property answer text <p>We are unable to provide a breakdown as requested for those who have served in the armed forces. The Ministry began collecting data on service in the armed forces from 2015. All newly received offenders into custody (convicted or remanded) are now asked on reception if they have served in the armed forces. Latest figures published in October 2017 show approximately 3% of offenders who responded to the question were former members of the armed forces. This has been a similar level to the previous four quarters. Due to the very small number of female ex-armed service personnel in prisons this number is not split by gender.</p><p> </p><p>Prisoners who choose to identify as veterans are given access to available specialist support via the armed forces. This includes support for issues such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), that may affect them following their service. Additional support can be offered by military service charities working with prisons and rehabilitation services.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>We take a zero tolerance approach to contraband in prison and use a range of robust security measures to find them, including searches and specially trained dogs. Prisoners who are found with contraband face tough punishments including having their privileges removed, getting time added onto their sentence and may be referred to the police for prosecution.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to focussing our efforts on preventing drugs from entering custody and an intelligence led approach to using MDT tests most effectively and programmes and support to ensure that prisoners can stay free from drugs in custody. The national positive rate of MDT samples has remained reasonably static since April 2010, with the rate between 7.0% and 7.4%, down from 24.4% in 1996.</p><p> </p><p>A table showing the number of mandatory drug tests that have taken place in each prison in each quarter since 2006 has been placed in the House Library.</p><p> </p><p>All figures used in providing this document 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. The data are not subject to audit.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All sexual offences are abhorrent and the most serious offences carry severe maximum penalties. Since 2009, more sex offenders are being sent to custody, and for longer. The average custodial sentence length for all sexual offences has increased from 49.3 months in 2009 to 59.1 months in 2013. This Government has also introduced an automatic life sentence for a second very serious sexual, or violent, offence and is legislating to end automatic early release for all dangerous offenders, and all for child rapists.</p><p> </p><p>Offenders sentenced to immediate custody at all courts in England and Wales, from 2005 to 2013 (latest data available), by age groups, can be viewed in the following table.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="6">Offenders sentenced at all courts for sexual offences, England and Wales, 2005 to 2013 <sup>(1)(2)</sup></td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td>Outcome</td><td>Age group</td><td>2005</td><td>2006</td><td>2007</td><td>2008 <sup>(3)</sup></td><td>2009</td><td>2010</td><td>2011</td><td>2012</td><td>2013</td></tr><tr><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td rowspan="5">Immediate custody</td><td>25 and under</td><td>574</td><td>578</td><td>579</td><td>656</td><td>662</td><td>766</td><td>774</td><td>763</td><td>718</td></tr><tr><td>26-45</td><td>1,257</td><td>1,289</td><td>1,244</td><td>1,295</td><td>1,289</td><td>1,321</td><td>1,336</td><td>1,350</td><td>1,390</td></tr><tr><td>46-64</td><td>680</td><td>720</td><td>763</td><td>797</td><td>771</td><td>917</td><td>981</td><td>970</td><td>912</td></tr><tr><td>65 and over</td><td>178</td><td>200</td><td>191</td><td>204</td><td>218</td><td>255</td><td>322</td><td>314</td><td>338</td></tr><tr><td>All</td><td>2,689</td><td>2,787</td><td>2,777</td><td>2,952</td><td>2,940</td><td>3,259</td><td>3,413</td><td>3,397</td><td>3,358</td></tr><tr><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="11">(1) The figures given in the table relate to persons for whom these offences were the principal offences for which they were dealt with.
