Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN HL3116, tabled on 28 October 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what was the total value of fines (1) issued by the courts, and (2) collected, in 2014–15.

Answered on

4 November 2015

The total value of fines issued and collected in 2014/15 was:


Fines imposed 2014/15

Value of Fines imposed in 2014/15 collected in same year of imposition

Total fines collected in 2014/15 (regardless of date of imposition)

£250,740,040

£84,688,512

£161,930,070


The ‘total fines collected’ figure includes the £84.7m collected in the same year of imposition. These figures relate to fines only and not any other financial imposition types.
