Data on those proceeded against, found guilty and sentenced for offences involving domestic violence, such as threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between adults are not separately identified in the data reported centrally to the Ministry of Justice. Furthermore, it is not possible to separately identify the relationship between defendant and victim, and their gender. This detailed information is not reported to Justice Statistical Analytical Services due to their size and complexity and as such, it can only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p>

Contractors are sourced via Pan Government contractual arrangements and rates are set by the contract in line with contractors experience and the job role required. Contractors are not able to charge more for their services than the initial price agreed at time of appointment. Pan Government arrangements date back to 1/4/11 and no information prior to this date is available.</p><p> </p><p>(b) Since May 2010 there have been around 70 contracts awarded by The Ministry of Justice to provide the provision of consultancy.</p><p> </p><p>To establish whether a consultancy company have charged more than the initial price agreed for their services we would need to interrogate both the files and companies to obtain the information required and then review and collate that information.
