Alcoholic Drinks: Unpaid Fines

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 16 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) penalty notices for disorder and (b) other fines for being drunk and disorderly remained unpaid (i) six and (ii) 12 months after issue in each of the last five years. (288427)

[holding answer 21 July 2009]: Information on paid, part paid and unpaid fines for offences of drunk and disorderly are not collected centrally. Information on the enforcement rate of financial penalties imposed by courts is held but cannot identify the originating offence.

It is therefore not possible to establish how many fines remain unpaid over the last five years for drunk and disorderly offences.
