§ Helen Jones
To ask the Attorney-General what was the cost of gaining convictions against children for offences relating to prostitution in each year since 1992. 
The information sought is recorded only on individual case files and is not collected or collated centrally. This information could therefore be collected only at disproportionate cost. Home Office statistics for 1989 and 1994 show a decline in convictions for soliciting in the 14 to 17 year old age group.
