Crime: Fuel Laundering

Volume 702: debated on Tuesday 24 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many people were charged with fuel laundering offences in County Armagh in 2005, 2006 and 2007; and how many were found guilty. [HL4211]

It is not the Government's policy to disclose where individuals have been charged because this may compromise HMRC operations.

For the whole of Northern Ireland, in 2005, 2006 and 2007, the numbers of people that were: (a) charged with fuel laundering offences (or proceeded against by way of information and summons) and (b) convicted of such offences are presented in the following table.
