asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many cases are currently awaiting decisions by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board; and how many of these have been waiting for more than 12 months.

These included a number in which the board awaited the results of inquiries and about 8,000 cases in which it had made an initial decision.
