§ Mr. Shore
To ask the Attorney-General how many cases of incitement to racial hatred under the Public Order Act 1986 were referred to him by the Crown Prosecution Service in each year since 1987; how many were not proceeded with(a) through insufficient evidence, (b) because prosecution was judged not to be in the public interest and (c) for other reasons.
I am causing inquiries to be made into the matters raised by the right hon. Member and I will reply as soon as possible.
