This information is essential so that the impact of any changes to the GRA can be accurately risk-assessed.
We asked the prison service for more information about their trans-identifying male prisoner population by submitting Freedom of Information (FOI) requests (copies of submissions are here and here).
In other cases, the presence of a trans-identifying individual or group was mentioned.
In many cases, no information regarding trans-identifying inmates was mentioned at all.
