The Jury Central Summoning Bureau (JCSB) have summoned all jurors in England and Wales since 2001. They deal with all summons replies and everything to do with jurors prior to attending court. The entire budget of the JCSB is therefore spent on summoning jurors and so we can estimate the amount spent on summoning jurors who do not serve by proportioning the whole JCSB budget by the percentage who do not serve. On that basis the total spent on summoning jurors who did not serve in each of the last five years was:
£ 2001-02 528,000 2002-03 507,000 2003-04 525,000 2004-05 541,000 2005-06 623,000
Those who do not serve as jurors fall into two broad categories: those who are excused or disqualified; and those who do not respond to their jury summons.
