While over recent years both male and female prisoner populations have increased, generally female prisoners make up about 5 per cent. of the total prison population. In the most recent complete calendar year (2007), about 13 per cent. of prisoner on officer assaults occurred in female prisons.
Mr. Malins: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the budget of the Probation Service is in 2008-09; and what proportion of that budget is for the care and aftercare of young people in young offender institutions. 
Mr. Hanson: The delegated budget for the probation service for 2008-09 is £914 million resource and £3 million capital. The detail of the proportion of the delegated budget spent on the care and after care of young peoplethe 18 to 21-year-old offendersin young offender institutions is not held centrally, and could be obtained only at a disproportionate cost because of the need to survey all 36 probation boards and the six probation trusts. The probation service is not responsible for the care or after care of offenders under 18 years old who are managed by the youth offending teams.
Mr. Malins: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the re-offending rate (a) within six months and (b) within 12 months for young men on release from young offender institutions was in each of the last four years. 
The following table shows the reoffending figures for juvenile male offenders (aged 10 to 17), who were released from custody in the first quarter of 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. The following table shows the proportion of offenders that committed at least one further offence and the number of further offences committed per 100 offenders.
|Number of releases from custody||Proportion of offenders reoffending (1 year)||Number of offences per 100 offenders (1 year)|
Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 10 November 2008, Official Report, column 874W, on reoffenders, how many offenders under 21 years old who had served (a) less than six months, (b) between six months and one year and (c) more than one year reoffended within six months of release since June 2007. 
Mr. Hanson: We do not collate figures on reoffending occurring within six months of leaving custody. On an annual basis we publish rates which measure reoffending over a 12 month period. We also do not hold data on length of custodial sentence for the index offence for juveniles (aged under 18 years).
The following table shows the reoffending figures for offenders aged 18 to 20 who were released from custody in the first quarter of 2004, 2005 and 2006, by the length of sentence that they were given in court (time served in custody will be less than this). The table provides the proportion of offenders that committed at least one further offence and the number of further offences committed per 100 offenders. Offences which result in a conviction at court are counted as a reoffence.
|Length of custodial sentence for index offence||Year||Number of releases from custody||Rate of reoffending (1 year)||Number of offences per 100 offenders (1 year)|
Bridget Prentice: This information is not recorded centrally. However we have been told by the Community Security Trust charity that they received reports of nine incidents of desecration of Jewish cemeteries in the United Kingdom in 2006 and six in 2007. For reasons of security and confidentiality they feel it would be inappropriate to make public details of the sites concerned.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what estimate his Department has made of the cost to the NHS of treating patients who were involved in cycling accidents and were not wearing a cycle helmet in the latest period for which figures are available; 
Mr. Bradshaw: The national health service has not been asked to identify separately the costs of treating road traffic accident victims or those injured in cycling accidents because of the burden it would impose. Where a patient receives a compensation payment for their injuries, however incurred, the NHS is able to reclaim the costs of their treatment from whoever pays the compensation. In 2007-08, over £137 million was recovered in this way.

Finished admission episodes
A finished admission episode is the first period of inpatient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. Finished admission episodes are counted against the year in which the admission episode finishes. Please note that admissions do not represent the number of inpatients, as a person may have more than one admission within the year.
The cause code is a supplementary code that indicates the nature of any external cause of injury, poisoning or other adverse effects. The field within HES counts only the first external cause code which is coded within the episode.
Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) are compiled from data sent by more than 300 NHS trusts and primary care trusts (PCTs) in England. Data are also received from a number of independent sector organisations for activity commissioned by the English NHS. The NHS Information Centre for health and social care liaises closely with these organisations to encourage submission of complete and valid data and seeks to minimise inaccuracies and the effect of missing and invalid data via HES processes. While this brings about improvement over time, some shortcomings remain.
Figures have not been adjusted for shortfalls in data (i.e. the data are ungrossed).
Assessing growth through time
HES figures are available from 1989-90 onwards. During the years that these records have been collected by the NHS there have been ongoing improvements in quality and coverage. These improvements in information submitted by the NHS have been particularly marked in the earlier years and need to be borne in mind when analysing time series.
Some of the increase in figures for later years (particularly 2006-07 onwards) may be due to the improvement in the coverage of independent sector activity.
Changes in NHS practice also need to be borne in mind when analysing time series. For example, a number of procedures may now be undertaken in outpatient settings and may no longer be accounted for in the HES data. This may account for any reductions in activity over time.
