Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Penalty Notices for Disorder issued in 2006 were registered as fines; and how many Penalty Notices for Disorder issued in (a) 2004 and (b) 2005 were paid (i) within the 21 day suspended enforcement period and (ii) outside the 21 day suspended enforcement period. (137773)

I have been asked to reply.

Provisional data for 2006 on the number of Penalty Notices for Disorder are currently available only for total numbers PNDs issued; detailed data for 2006 will be available when the data are published in the summer.

Data from the Penalty Notices for Disorder Database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform show that in 2004, of the 33,078 PNDs which were paid in full, 24,126 were paid within the initial 21-day suspended enforcement period with the remaining 8,952 paid outside the suspended enforcement period. In 2005 there were 77,247 paid in full, with 56,823 paid within the initial 21-day suspended enforcement period and the remaining 20,424 paid outside the suspended enforcement period.
