Mr. Byrne: Information on persons detained at Yarl's Wood Immigration Service Removal Centre for all periods of time requested is not available; this information could be obtained only through the examination of individual records at disproportionate cost.
However, management information currently available shows that of the persons held in detention for at least nine months and detained at Yarls Wood as at 10 July 2008, one has been in detention for between nine and 12 months, four have been in detention for between 12 and 18 months and four have been in detention for more than 18 months.
Alistair Burt: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department to which countries those people detained at Yarl's Wood Detention and Removal Centre who have been detained there for more than nine months are due to be returned; and how many do not have current removal directions. 
Mr. Byrne: Those people detained at Yarls Wood Detention and Removal Centre for more than nine months as 10 July 2008 are recorded as nationals of Liberia, Nigeria, Jordon, Kenya, Vietnam, India and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In seven of these cases removal directions are not currently set.
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many re-convictions of young offenders there were in each police force area in each
year since 1997; and what percentage of convictions of young offenders this represented in each year. 
Information on re-offending by juveniles by police force area is not available. Figures for re-offending by juveniles were published in May of this year in Re-offending of Juveniles: new measures of re-offending 2000 to 2005 England and Wales, but the data sets used do not enable analysis by police force area.
