[holding answer 27 October 2009]: The Identity and Passport Service did not separately record details on convictions for offences of fraud prior to the introduction of its Fraud Casework and Management Information system in April 2005. The number of convictions recorded by IPS from then onwards are as follows:
Financial year Convictions 2005-06 12 2006-07 55 2007-08 9 2008-09 6
It is not possible to obtain any further breakdown by region or specific location. In those cases when IPS receives notification of a conviction from a court, or the police, the information provided states the name of the court only.
