David T.C. Davies: To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice how many offenders made the subject of each type of community supervision by the courts were sent to prison for (a) further offending during the duration of the order and (b) otherwise breaching the conditions of the order in each of the last six years for which figures are available. 
Mr. Sutcliffe: Information for England and Wales on the completion rates for the main types of community sentence, for each year since 1995, can be found in Table 5.1 of the Home Office Statistical Bulletin: Offender Management Caseload Statistics 2005, a copy of which can be found in the House of Commons Library. This information shows the number of community sentences which are terminated due to further offences being committed by the offender or for failure to comply with the requirements of the sentence. Information on the number of offenders received into prison in each of the last six years for breaching community sentences is shown as follows. Information on the number of offenders who are sent to prison for committing further offences during community supervision is not centrally available.

Mr. Clapham: To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice if he will initiate an inquiry into the arrest, prosecution and conviction of the 24 building workers in 1972, known as the Shrewsbury 24, and the subsequent treatment they have received whilst serving their jail sentences; and if he will place copies of the documents held by his Department relating to the case in the Library. 
Mr. Sutcliffe: Any person who believes they have been the victim of a miscarriage of justice can apply to the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) for a review of their case. The CCRC has the power to review possible miscarriages of justice in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, to gain access to documents and other material which may be relevant to its investigations, and to refer to the appropriate court any case in which there is a real possibility that the conviction will not be upheld. Unless, however, there are exceptional circumstances, the CCRC is not empowered to refer cases until the court appeal system has been exhausted. It is open to prisoners and former prisoners to seek recompense through civil litigation for any alleged wrongdoing while in prison custody.
Mr. Sutcliffe: The offence of ticket touting, under section 166 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 applies to regulated football matches.

Detailed information on football-related arrests has been collated by the Football Banning Orders Authority since the football season 2001-02, when the existing banning order framework was introduced. The following table provides details of prosecutions in respect of ticket touting offences.
