To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what proportion of reported thefts of tools from trades vehicles has resulted in a prosecution in each of the last five years.
Answer (Mr Nick Hurd)
The Crown Prosecution Service does not maintain a central record of the number of people who have been prosecuted for offences of thefts of tools from trades vehicles. This information could only be obtained by examining Crown Prosecution Case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.
