Prosecution Rates

Volume 481: debated on Monday 20 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) what the prosecution rate was for racist hate crime detected by the Police Service for Northern Ireland in each of the last five years; (227421)

(2) what the prosecution rate was for homophobic hate crime detected by the Police Service for Northern Ireland in each of the last five years.

This is an operational matter for the Director of Public Prosecutions. I have asked him to reply directly to the hon. Member, and will arrange for a copy of the letter to be placed in the Official Report and the Library of the House.
