Sentencing: Appeals

Volume 459: debated on Thursday 3 May 2007

To ask the Solicitor-General how many unduly lenient sentences for crimes committed by serving police officers were referred to the Court of Appeal in (a) England, (b) Hertfordshire and (c) Dacorum in each of the last five years; and how many appeals were upheld in each year. (135324)

I regret that information on sentences referred by the Law Officers to the Court of Appeal as unduly lenient is not recorded by reference to whether or not the offender was a serving police officer. This information can be obtained only at a disproportionate cost
