On 12 April 2010, the Northern Ireland Office transferred responsibility for policing and justice to the Northern Ireland Assembly. Comparative figures are not available prior to this date.

Since 12 April 2010 my Department has made 11 statutory instruments.

My Department issued no other secondary legislation (e. g. statutory rules) in the above period. The information relating to ministerial orders could be obtained only at disproportionate costs.
