HC Deb 05 December 1995 vol 268 c211W
Ms Janet Anderson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many defendants in each ethnic category were sentenced to a period of custody; and what percentage of each group were sentenced without a pre-sentence report in 1994. [3649]

Mr. Maclean

Court proceedings data held centrally by my Department does not identify the ethnic of those sentenced, not whether a pre-sentence report was prepared.
