1. Figures for initiations and disposals do not necessarily refer to the same cases.
2. The number of cases disposed of is likely to be an underestimate.
3. Data from the new case management system is not currently split between 'defended' and 'undefended', therefore these have been combined into a single category.
4. Includes cases disposed as refused, dropped from roll and withdrawn.
