Andrew Stunell: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many persons who received indeterminate sentences for public protection and who have passed their minimum tariff date have been released in each month since the sentence was introduced; and how many people released from such sentences have subsequently been recalled in each such year. 
Maria Eagle: As of 15 January 2010, the number of offenders who received indeterminate sentences of imprisonment for public protection (IPP), who have passed their minimum tariff date and who have been released in each month since the sentence was introduced is shown in the following table.
There is nothing automatic about release on tariff expiry. After an offender sentenced to an IPP has completed his tariff, it is for the independent Parole Board to determine whether his risk of harm is such that he may be safely managed in the community. Of those prisoners who have been released, two were recalled to custody in 2007, six in 2008 and 15 in 2009.
