Domestic Violence: Prosecutions

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) how many prosecutions for offences relating to domestic violence there were in each year since 2003; (201486)

(2) what proportion of prosecutions for offences connected to domestic violence resulted in conviction in each year since 2003.

The data held centrally by my Department on the court proceedings database do not contain information about the circumstances behind each case other than the information that may be gleaned from the offence itself. As a result offences involving an element of domestic violence cannot be identified.
