star this property answer text <p>The sums my Department has spent on legal representation for the Government at inquests in each of the last ten calendar years are set out below.</p><p>2009 £2,742,878.88</p><p>2010 £2,454,272.31</p><p>2011 £2,573,967.95</p><p>2012 £2,292,076.76</p><p>2013 £2,861,681.67</p><p>2014 £2,806,249.30</p><p>2015 £2,947,851.78</p><p>2016 £3,568,044.30</p><p>2017 £4,198,893.32</p><p>2018 £3,720,373.41</p><p> </p><p>These are the costs of representation for the Ministry of Justice, Her Majesty's Prison &amp; Probation Service and the Youth Justice Board, and for their staff. In the vast majority of cases the legal representatives are acting for both the body and all members of its staff called as witnesses, and the respective costs cannot therefore be separated. In a very small number of cases separate representation is provided for one or more members of staff.</p><p> </p><p>The costs of representation for contracted prisons and their staff are met by the provider. Before the National Probation Service was created in April 2014 each Probation Trust met its own representation costs, and since then each Community Rehabilitation Company has done likewise. In addition, in 2009 and 2010 £17,770.07 was incurred on representation for prison Independent Monitoring Boards.</p>
