Corruption: Juries

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences of embracery were recorded in each year since 1997; 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. (195988)

The information requested is not available. Offences of ‘embracery’ are recorded in the ‘attempting to pervert the course of justice’ offence classification and cannot be separately identified from other offences within that offence classification. As a result, information on the percentage which resulted in court proceedings and convictions for those offences cannot be provided.
