Offenders: Unemployed

Volume 459: debated on Tuesday 1 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what his most recent estimate is of the (a) number and (b) proportion of people (i) charged with a crime and (ii) imprisoned who were unemployed; and what the equivalent figures were (A) 10 years ago and (B) 20 years ago. (134137)

The court proceedings database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform is unable to provide the number and proportion of people charged and imprisoned who were unemployed, as the individual circumstances of offenders is not centrally held.
