To ask the Solicitor-General how much the case against Mrs. Trupti Patel cost public funds. [119656]

[holding answer 16 June 2003]: The trial of Regina v. Trupti Patel only concluded on 11 June 2003, and it is therefore not possible at this early stage to give an accurate costs figure. However, the Crown Prosecution Service estimate that their costs will be in the region of £160,000 to £170,000.This figure does not include staff or running costs, which are attributable to the operation of the Crown Prosecution Service as a whole and cannot be assessed on an individual basis.
