No go slow at end of year

I was surprised by Christie Davis' article in The Lawyer 9 April. My memory of him at Cambridge is that he argued with academic rigour.

I am not aware of any evidence that the Police or the CPS arrest and process fewer people towards the end of the financial year.

I can produce figures for my own Force which I am confident are representative of the whole country.
