Since 1997 the Government has embarked on a programme of reform in the criminal justice system to deliver justice for all by convicting and punishing the guilty and helping them to stop offending, while protecting the innocent.

Statistics are not maintained at a constituency level, but within the Dyfed Powys area, the introduction of a statutory charging scheme has already had an impact on the number of cases falling out of the criminal justice system after charge. There has been a reduction from 21.2 per cent. to 17.3 per cent. since 2002–03.
