Mr. Lilley: To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor‘s Department in how many cases referred by magistrates to the Crown court for sentencing the defendant had pleaded (a) guilty and (b) not guilty in the latest year for which figures are available. [26151]

Mr. Wills: In 2000, the latest year for which figures are available, the Crown court disposed of 28,713 cases referred from magistrates courts for sentencing. Figures are not available on how the defendant had pleaded in these cases. However information collected in the magistrates courts Time Intervals Survey shows that 87 per cent. of defendants committed to the Crown court for sentencing in 2000 had pleaded guilty and 13 per cent. had pleaded not guilty.
