Very few second strikers

The Ministry of Justice’s latest figures show that the number of First Strikers has just reached 10,000, or 10,031 to be exact.

Only 302 of those 10,031 were unwilling or unable to control themselves from re-offending and went on to become Second Strikers.

And just four of those 302 second strikers have gone on to become Third Strikers.

This appears to me to be working very well in discouraging reoffending. Yet Labour wants to repeal the law.

The strikes by year are:

  • 2010 – 160, 0, 0
  • 2011 – 912, 1, 0
  • 2012 – 1,310, 12, 0
  • 2013 –  1,335, 16, 0
  • 2014 – 1,277, 32, 0
  • 2015 –  1,297, 53, 0
  • 2016 – 1,446, 57, 1
  • 2017 – 1,538, 85, 1
  • 2018 – 747, 57, 2
