To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many Magistrates' court hearings have been cancelled in (a) the North West, (b) Liverpool City Region and (c) Wirral in each year from 2010 to date.
20 January 2020
The information requested is not available.
Information about cancelled hearings is not held in this form because there are many types of Magistrates’ Court hearings and reasons why they may not proceed.
HMCTS does collect data about effective, cracked, ineffective and vacated trials, it is published here https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/criminal-court-statistics-quarterly-july-to-september-2019 and can be found in the ‘Trial effectiveness at the criminal courts tool’.
