HC Deb 16 February 1999 vol 325 c645W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the financial return from fiscal fines in the last recorded year and the distribution of fines by amount. [70342]

Mr. McLeish

Information provided by the district courts shows that in 1997–98 approximately £527,000 was collected from the payment of fiscal fines. Information on the amount of fines by value is not held centrally.

From 1 July 1999 this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
