Volume 472: debated on Monday 25 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what percentage of offenders who were tried in a specialist domestic violence court received (a) bail, (b) fines and (c) non-custodial sentences in the last period for which figures are available. (187899)

There is no specific data available on court bail decisions for those defendants appearing in the Specialist Domestic Violence Courts. As data are only collected on sentence on such cases at a local level where required to assist in implementation and maintenance of the model, a complete sentencing data set is not available.
