Crime: Prosecutions

Volume 488: debated on Monday 2 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prosecutions there have been for each criminal offence created by legislation since 1997. (254502)

I have been asked to reply.

There is no central system that routinely records the number of prosecutions for new offences created across Whitehall. To obtain the requested information, an investigation will be necessary in order to separately identify and list data for all new offences.

This information is being collated and I will write to the hon. Member as soon as it is available. A copy will be placed in the House Library.
