Remand in Custody

Volume 503: debated on Monday 11 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people in each age group who were remanded in custody in each year since 1997 were not convicted of the offence for which they were remanded in custody; and how much time was spent on remand by such people. (308778)

Information collected by the Ministry of Justice and held centrally on the court proceedings database only records details of the final outcome of court proceedings, e.g. following conviction or acquittal. Therefore it is not possible to provide information on the original offence for which a defendant was proceeded against.
