HC Deb 16 February 1994 vol 237 c870W
Mrs. Golding

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many prosecutions of child abuse cases have been sent directly to the Crown court since October 1992.

Mr. Maclean

I have been asked to reply.

The information readily available centrally relates to trials completed at the Crown court following the issue of a notice of transfer, under either section 53 of the Criminal Justice Act 1991 (certain cases involving children) or section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1987 (serious fraud cases). No cases were recorded in the period 1 October to 31 December 1992. Information for 1993 will be available in the autumn.
