asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will estimate for each of the last 10 years the numbers of police hours lost by officers (a) attending criminal courts on days when the cases did not call in court, (b) when the accused person changed his or her plea or (c) when the prosecution deserted the case.

I regret that the information from which any such estimates might be made is not available.
