Shoplifting: Sentencing

Volume 481: debated on Monday 27 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice when he plans to respond to the results of the consultation on the sentencing guidelines for shoplifting; what recent representations he has received on the sentencing guidelines for shoplifting; and if he will make a statement. (228982)

The Government responded in June this year to the independent Sentencing Guidelines Council’s consultation guideline on sentencing for the offences of theft and burglary (non-dwelling). I am advised that MOJ has received no representations on the consultation sentencing guideline for the offence of theft from a shop.
