As the Deputy is aware, under the provisions of the Courts Service Act 1998, management of the courts is the responsibility of the Courts Service, which is independent in exercising its functions, which include the provision of information on the courts system.
However, in order to be of assistance to the Deputy, I have had enquiries made and the Courts Service has advised that it is not possible to provide the information requested by the Deputy in the time available. The information will be forwarded to the Deputy as soon as it is to hand.
