Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the average number of days from arrest to sentence in cases involving persistent young offenders was at the most recent date for which figures are available for each police force area. 
Maria Eagle: In 1996, the average time from arrest to sentence for persistent young offenders was 142 days. The Government pledged to halve the time to 71 days by March 2002 (changed to May 2002 by the 2001 manifesto). The pledge is a target that applies jointly to all Criminal Justice Agencies.
The average number of days from arrest to sentence (three month rolling average) for persistent young offenders in England and Wales for July to September 2007 was 62 days. The monthly performance for September 2007 was 60 days. Therefore the performance is better than the Governments pledge.
The information contained in the following table details the most recent arrest to sentence details for each Local Criminal Justice Board (LCJB). LCJBs are coterminous with police force areas with the exception of Metropolitan which cover both the Metropolitan and City of London forces.
