Prosecutions: Greater London

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 3 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what percentage of serious crimes reported to the police led to prosecutions in each London borough in the last 12 months. (258493)

Information is not available in the form requested. The Home Office collects statistics on the number of offences recorded by the police and the method of detection where appropriate. One of the methods of detection is ‘charge/summons’ but there is no way of establishing how many recorded offences actually led to a prosecution. Data specifically on defendants proceeded against are collected by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform in the Ministry of Justice.
