Protection from Harassment Act 1997

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 Protection from Harassment Act 1997 in each year since 2002, 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. (196026)

The information requested is not available. Offences under this legislation are recorded in the ‘Harassment’ or the ‘Racially or religiously aggravated harassment’ offence classifications 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.
