HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 c68W
Mr. Nicholas Bennett

To ask the Attorney-General what is the longest period in recent years between offence and trial; and if he will give details of the case.

The Attorney-General

Statistics relating to the period of the time between the date of an offence and the date of a trial are not collected. Accordingly, the information which is sought is not readily available and can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
