IT running cost represents the cost of supporting the interim solution. The expenditure figures do not include the costs of other bodies whose functions include, but are not exclusively, support for the establishment, operation and monitoring of the ISA. They do not include estimates of expenditure in the current year which are yet to be audited.

The number of convictions recorded by IPS from then onwards are as follows:
It is not possible to obtain any further breakdown by region or specific location. In those cases when IPS receives notification of a conviction from a court, or the police, the information provided states the name of the court only.
Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the value was of assets (a) seized and (b) frozen under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 in each police force area in the East of England in each year since 2002. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: Information is not available in the form requested. The value of cash forfeiture orders and confiscation orders obtained by each police force in the eastern region from 2003-04 is set out in the table. The police can obtain forfeiture orders in the magistrates courts following the seizure of cash which they have reasonable grounds for suspecting is the proceeds of crime or intended for use in crime. Confiscation orders are made in the Crown court. The enforcement of confiscation orders is essentially a matter for HM Courts Service.
