Civil Partnership Act 2004

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 Civil Partnership Act 2004 in each year since its entry into force, broken down by offence; and what percentage of those offences (a) resulted in court proceedings against suspected perpetrators, (b) led to a conviction and (c) resulted in a sanction detection. (196009)

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