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.
