Expenditure on translation services in England by the Department and its agencies
HM Courts Service and the Tribunals Service are able to isolate expenditure in England which is as follows:
|HM Courts Service (HMCS)(1)||10||27|
|(1) This figures represents expenditure by Crown courts only as no central records are maintained that breakdown expenditure by magistrates courts.|
Other parts of the Department do not maintain records in a way that would enable expenditure in England to be separately identified from expenditure in Wales or Scotland. Total expenditure is shown as follows and will include the cost of translating documents under the Welsh language scheme.
|Ministry of Justice HQ||273||388|
|National Offenders Management Service-interpretation and translation(1)||868||966|
|Office of the Public Guardian(2)||25||25|
|(1 )This figure includes translation costs as well as interpretation costs. The amounts are not separately recorded and can be disaggregated only at disproportionate cost. Additionally, the NOMS figure excludes expenditure by the National Probation Service which is held locally by 42 probation boards and trusts who use separate and different accounting systems. Information could be determined only at disproportionate cost through examination of local records. |
(2 )Figures for the Office of Public Guardian are an estimate of the translation component within a wider category of expenditure.
Interpretation and translation services are provided on the basis of need. Costs are kept to a minimum and, when translation and interpretation services are taken together across all territories served by the Ministry of Justice, expenditure has not risen in recent years.
