Adoption and Children Act 2002

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences were recorded under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 in each year since its entry into force, broken down by offence; and what percentage of these offences (a) resulted in court proceedings against suspected perpetrators, (b) led to a conviction and (c) resulted in a sanction detection. (196000)

The information requested is not available. Offences under this legislation are recorded in the ‘Other indictable or triable either way offences’ classification and cannot be separately identified from other offences within that classification. As a result, information on the percentage which resulted in court proceedings and convictions for those offences cannot be provided.
