The information requested is not collected centrally in this form. To provide it, we would need to undertake a manual examination of individual records of prisoner journeys in North Wales. This could not be done without incurring disproportionate cost.
Police cells are not normally used to accommodate prisoners remanded or sentenced by the courts. However, circumstances can exceptionally occur – for example where there is major traffic disruption owing to bad weather or other causes – in which it is not possible, at the end of the court proceedings, to complete a journey to a prison in the time available.
