Protection from Harassment Act 1997

Question for Attorney General

UIN 210497, tabled on 14 October 2014

To ask the Attorney General, what the conviction rates for offences under Section 2A and 4A of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 were in 2013-14.

The Crown Prosecution Service does not maintain a central record of the number or rate of convictions obtained by act and section. To obtain details of the conviction rate for offences charged by way of Section 2A and 4A of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 (stalking), would require a manual exercise of reviewing individual case files to be undertaken at a disproportionate cost.
