Volume 450: debated on Thursday 26 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what percentage of cases of each category of crime, as reported to the police or other authority, resulted in a (a) conviction in court, (b) reference to a Youth Court and (c) conviction in a jurisdiction outwith England and Wales in each year since 1999. (89383)

The information requested is not available centrally. The recorded crime statistics are based on offences and the court proceedings statistics are based on persons. As a result the two datasets are not directly comparable.

Data on crimes reported to the police for the years requested are available in the Home Office publication, “Crime in England and Wales” 2005-06, which can be accessed via the link

Data on Court Proceedings is available from our “Criminal Statistics, England and Wales 2004” publication which is available via the web link Data on Convictions broken down by category of crime for the last 10 years can be found in table 3.6 of the publication.
