Shoplifting: Prosecutions

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Solicitor-General how many prosecutions were brought for shoplifting by the Crown Prosecution Service in each of the last three years; and if she will make a statement. (212150)

The CPS data are only broken down by offences and can only provide prosecutions for theft as an offence. I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by the Ministry of Justice on 7 May 2008, Official Report, column 987W.
