The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of defendants prosecuted for offences where they have (a) abused, (b) radicalised and (c) trafficked their children who were in home education at that time prosecuted. This information could only be obtained by manually searching CPS case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.
