Emily Thornberry – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Attorney General

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Emily Thornberry on 2014-06-10.

To ask the Attorney General, how many homicide prosecutions the Crown Prosecution Service undertook in 2013 where there were (a) three defendants, (b) four defendants, (c) five defendants and (d) six or more defendants.

Oliver Heald

The Crown Prosecution Service does not maintain a central record of the number of defendants in its prosecutions. This information could only be obtained by examining all homicide files, which would incur a disproportionate cost.
