Justine Greening (- Shadow Minister, Communities and Local Government; Putney, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 1 March 2010, Official Report, columns 932-34W, on juries, how many people were (a) required and (b) summoned for jury service in each year from 1990 to 2000; and how many of those summoned (i) were disqualified and (ii) refused to undertake jury service for each reason in each such year.
Bridget Prentice (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Ministry of Justice; Lewisham East, Labour)
The information requested from 1990-2000 for how many people were required for jury service, summoned for jury service, were disqualified and those who refused to undertake jury service are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. This is because the summoning process was undertaken and the records were held manually at each Crown court in England and Wales.
