Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Home Office,

In relation to UK police use of TASER weapons could you please release:

1. The latest statistics on TASER use by the UK police. I am aware of those published at http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/publication... which cover the period to March 2010; this request is for any more recent such statistics.

2. The current schedule for publication of UK police TASER use statistics; ie. the current proposed timetable for the proactive publication of UK police TASER use statistics by the Home Office.

3. Any correspondence between the Home Office and police forces directly in relation to attempts to collect, and clarify, the raw data for the collation of UK Police TASER use statistics for the period since March 2010. I am not seeking correspondence with forces which have provided data without issue, but with those where there are problems with data provision.

The response states:

"Information relating to taser use by England and Wales police forces after March 2010 is not currently available due to data capture issues taking longer to resolve.

The Home Office still intends to publish England and Wales police service taser statistics in the Autumn of this year and at regular six monthly intervals.""

They appear to have missed the fact it's already Winter when declaring their intent to publish in "the Autumn".

I've searched the Home Office website and the latest statistics still appear to be those for the period to March 2010.
