answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service does not maintain a separate record of the outcome of prosecution proceedings by specific offences, such as non-benefit frauds, or where the offences prosecuted concerned one victim. To obtain this information would involve undertaking a manual search of case records which would incur a disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p> more like this

Since April 2012, the SFO’s caseload has been recalibrated so that it is taking on fewer and more complex cases, as envisaged by the Roskill model.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The SFO’s Intelligence Unit will assess all matters referred to the SFO whether by the public, the police or other agencies or organisations and refer those considered suitable for acceptance to a Case Evaluation Board before submission to the Director for his decision to open a criminal investigation under the Criminal Justice Act 1987.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>SFO investigations are complex, and this can sometimes lead to investigations merging or splitting into different parts.

answer text <p>It would not be appropriate to give a running commentary on SFO investigations. I am aware of the provisions within paragraph 4(b)4 of the Protocol, which state that if any such direction were to be made then I would make a report to Parliament, so far as was compatible with national security.</p><p> </p> more like this
