To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what advice his Department offers to Chief Constables of Police concerning targets on (a) monthly and (b) annual basis for numbers of (i) arrests made and (ii) summonses issued. [113606]

[holding answer 15 May 2003]: The matter of targets, either monthly or annual, on the number of arrests made or summonses issued, is not one on which the home office issues advice to Chief Constables. Such targets as are set are a matter for the Chief Constables in the light of the prevailing local circumstances within their force areas.
