Redundancy

Pete Wishart: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) how many civil service posts have been made redundant by his Department in each year since 1999; and what the cost of redundancies has been in each such year; [135495]

(2) how many posts have been declared redundant by each of his Department's executive agencies and non-departmental public bodies in each year since 1999; and what the cost of those redundancies has been. [135496]

Mrs Grant: The information is as follows:

(a) The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) was formed in 2007. Therefore the Department only holds records for the period from 2007.

The Department collects information on the number of people made compulsorily redundant rather than the number of redundant posts.

14 Jan 2013 : Column 555W

In 2007-08 and 2008-09, there were no compulsory redundancies.

In 2009-10, 26 people from across the Ministry of Justice, comprising headquarters and Executive agencies (HM Courts Service, the National Offender Management Service, the Tribunals Service and the Office of the Public Guardian) were made compulsorily redundant or faced compulsory severance. The overall cost was £1.65 million.

In 2010-11, there were no compulsory redundancies.

In 2011-12, seven people from across the Ministry of Justice, comprising headquarters and Executive agencies (HM Courts and Tribunals Service, the National Offender Management Service and the Office of the Public Guardian) were made compulsorily redundant or faced compulsory severance. The overall cost was around £296,000.

(b) The Department has only shown information relating to compensation payments in non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs) in annual reports from 2010-11. Therefore this information is only available from this period.

To provide it for previous years could be made available only at disproportionate cost.

In 2010-11,49 people from the Department’s NDPBs were made compulsorily redundant. The overall cost was around £1.4 million.

In 2011-12, 37 people from the Department’s NDPBs were made compulsorily redundant. The overall cost was around £840,000.

Young Offenders

Robert Flello: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people under the age of 18 have committed a first offence in each region in each month since May 2005; and how many such people were convicted of each offence in each region. [134912]

Jeremy Wright: The following table shows the number of people under the age of 18 who have committed a first offence in each region in each month since May 2005, and how many such people were convicted of each offence in each region. Table 2 shows the total number of convictions for the proven offences shown in table 1 by region, year and month. The difference in each total represents the number of cautions given.

These figures are derived from the data used to produce Table 7.2 in “Criminal Justice Statistics Quarterly Update to March 2012” which was last published on 13 September 2012. The link to the report is found at:

http://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/statistics/criminal-justice-stats/criminal-justice-stats-march-2012.pdf

These figures have been drawn from the police's administrative IT system, the police national computer, which, as with any large-scale recording system, is subject to possible errors with data entry and processing. The figures are provisional and subject to change as more information is recorded by the police.
