Offences Against Children: Convictions

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people convicted of offences against children committed in (a) schools, (b) sports clubs and (c) dental surgeries have received a custodial sentence of (i) between six months and two years and (ii) two years or more since 1979; and how many had previous convictions. (295322)

Information held centrally by my Department does not hold specific information on offences beyond descriptions provided by the statutes under which prosecutions are brought; therefore the Ministry of Justice cannot identify all offences against children or if the offence was committed in a school, sports club or dental surgery.
