Ministerial Correspondence

Volume 456: debated on Wednesday 31 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will estimate the cost of producing and sending his recent letter to magistrates on the use of incarceration. (112359)

The Home Secretary did not send a letter to sentencers. A statement by the three criminal justice Ministers—the Home Secretary, the Lord Chancellor and the Attorney-General—was issued to members of the National Criminal Justice Board and sent in electronic format to the Chairmen of Local Criminal Justice Boards. It was also placed on the judicial intranet by the Judicial Office.
