Asked how worried the Prime Minister was about the number of offenders who had breached their licence, the PMS said that the key point on offenders was that ten times as many were being recalled to prison each year under a much tougher recall regime. Ten thousand were recalled in the fifteen years between 1984 and 1999, when the system was court based. Since then ninety-two thousand had been recalled. The recall system broadly worked well – just under one per cent of those recalled between 1999 and June 2008 had not been apprehended. That did not mean that we were complacent; we would set measures in place to make the system even stronger, not least in respect to serious offenders who were still at large. The audit process and the figures released today were part of strengthening that regime.
