Fixed Penalties

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many of each category of fixed penalty notices were (a) issued and (b) paid in each police force area in each month since their introduction. (274149)

I have been asked to reply.

Information on the outcomes (endorsable and non-endorsable) of fixed penalty notices for motoring offences from 2004 to 2007 (latest available) are provided in tables 1 to 4 placed in the House Library.

Available annual information on motoring fixed penalty notices for previous years can be found in the Home Office Statistical publication ‘Offences relating to motor vehicles, England and Wales, Supplementary tables’, tables 20(a) to 20(c). Copies of the publication are available in the Libraries of the House.

Information held by the Ministry of Justice on the number of penalty notices for disorder (PND) issued, paid, unpaid and registered as fines by persons aged 16 and over by offence and police force area in England and Wales for the years 2004 to 2007 (latest available) can be viewed in tables 5 to 8 placed in the House Library. The PND scheme was implemented in all 43 forces in 2004.

PND data for 2008 will be available in the autumn of 2009.
