Immigrants: Crime

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many foreign nationals were convicted of criminal offences in Northern Ireland in each of the last five years. (142638)

At present information in relation to nationality is not included in court sentencing data and therefore it is not possible to calculate the number of foreign nationals who were convicted of criminal offences. I anticipate that such information will become available with the development of the Causeway information system.
