Police: Sentencing

Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what (a) representations he has received from and (b) discussions he has had with police forces on sentencing policy since December 2008; and if he will make a statement. (306091)

The Green Paper “Engaging Communities in Criminal Justice”, published in April 2009, contained questions relating to sentencing policy (e.g. reviews of community sentences, and content of those sentences). Responses on those points were received from police forces. There are also ongoing discussions with police forces of criminal justice issues, including sentencing where relevant, across the range of criminal justice forums on which the police are represented.
