Sentencing: Foreigners

Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many foreign nationals (1) were (a) convicted of and (b) sentenced to immediate custody for (i) drug dealing and (ii) firearms offences in 2007; (269255)

(2) are serving custodial sentences for (a) drug dealing and (b) firearms offences.

The information requested is not available as court proceedings held by the Ministry of Justice do not record offender’s nationality.

It is not possible to separately identify the number serving sentences for drug dealing and firearms offences as the data held centrally is not accurately recorded to this level of detail.
