Effects of the Bail Amendment Act - 2015 data

Mark Hanna made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

The request was successful.

From: Mark Hanna

Tēnā koe,

In early February, I requested information regarding the effects of the Bail Amendment Act[1]. The information I requested was effectively an update to some information presented in the Act's Regulatory Impact Statement[2].

In the response I received, I was told that 2015 calendar year data will be available at the end of March 2017 as part of the Ministry of Justice's general release of Tier 1 statistics.

Now that it's the 31st of March, I would like to request the following information:

1. An updated version of Table A3.1 from the Regulatory Impact Statement, containing data for 2015

2. A table of data as used in Figure A3.2 from the Regulatory Impact Statement, containing data for 2015

In my previous request I had asked for an updated version of Figure A3.2, and didn't ask for the raw data. However, I was also provided with a table containing the raw data. This was very useful, and I appreciated that extra information being included in the response I received. In this request I've only asked for the table, as with that data I will not also require a reproduction of Figure A3.2.

Please let me know if any parts of my request are unclear.

Ngā mihi,
Mark Hanna
