Crime: Convictions

Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 13 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proportion of incidents of recorded crime resulted in a conviction in each of the last 10 years. (306361)

Information is not available in the form requested.

It is not possible to track individual offences through to their conclusion at court. The police recorded crime data are principally victim-based and are the number of offences recorded in each financial year. Court proceedings data for convictions are collected by the Ministry of Justice and are offender based. These data are published on a calendar year basis and are counts of persons classified by their principal offence. For these reasons the two datasets are not directly comparable.
