Under the column Employee would you please supply me with the breakdown of the various types of employed persons represented in this column. EG how many of the 152 employees prosecuted were a managerial grade, a counter clerk working on a Crown Branch counter or engaged on back office/other duties ?

Also would you state how many of the 152 prosecutions related to a charge of theft or false accounting that relied on Horizon evidence?
