Police Custody: Young People

Volume 494: debated on Friday 19 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many juveniles were taken to court for an appearance pending trial from police cells in the last year for which figures are available. (280445)

[holding answer 17 June 2009]: I have been asked to reply.

The information requested is not collected centrally.

Data held by the Home Office on persons detained by the police and information on court proceedings and transit from police cells to courts held by the Ministry of Justice do not separately identify instances where a juvenile is taken to court during a period of detention.
