HC Deb 04 December 1997 vol 302 c322W
Mr. Burstow

To ask the Attorney-General what prosecutions have taken place of police officers and other related parties in connection with the overturning on appeal of criminal prosecutions proven to be unsound in the last three years; and if he will make a statement. [17696]

The Attorney-General

The Crown Prosecution Service does not keep statistics on particular offences it deals with. Consultation with relevant staff, however, suggests that there have been two cases, involving six defendants, in the last three years or thereabouts resulting in prosecutions, of which one case, involving four defendants, is still pending. There may be others.
