For the first three months of 2010, the Victim Liaison Scheme was the responsibility of local Probation Boards and a small number of Probation Trusts. From 1 April 2010 until 31 May 2014, it was provided by the 35 Probation Trusts. To establish whether the Ministry of Justice retains the requested information relating to this earlier period and, if so, to locate, retrieve, extract, collate and process it, would involve a detailed search of an extensive range of archived material, which would be extremely labour-intensive. Providing the information sought in these Questions would therefore involve costs of not less than £2,500.
