Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate he has made of the cost of re-offending to England and Wales in each of the last five years. (113640)

This information is not routinely collected and producing estimates would require disproportionate cost. There are some readily available sources that provide some indications of the nature of re-offending.

Information on the estimated costs of offences against individuals and households for 2003-04 and 2000 are published in Home Office Online Report 30/05, “The economic and social costs of crime against individuals and households 2003-04”.
