To ask Her Majesty's Government how many civil servants in (1) HM Treasury, (2) the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and (3) the Ministry of Defence, have been convicted in open court and sentenced to prison for offences in connection with their official duties, in each of the last ten years.

Detailed information on the occupation of the defendant may be held on individual court records. To be able to identify these cases, we would have to access and search individual court records which would be of disproportionate cost.
