Crime: Statistics

Volume 687: debated on Monday 18 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they hold statistics that identify the nature of the criminal allegations when remand was ordered by the court.[HL528]

Information on court remands is contained in chapter four of Criminal Statistics 2005 which can be found at:

Table 4.4, on page 78, gives estimated figures for the numbers of defendants remanded in custody by magistrates’ courts in England and Wales by broad category of offence. The remand data are not sufficiently robust to permit a more detailed breakdown of the offences involved. Information for Scotland is the responsibility of the Scottish Executive and information for Northern Ireland is the responsibility of the Northern Ireland Office.
