The MoJ issues figures on interpreting services in court
Latest statistics for England and Wales show proportion of offenders with multiple convictions is continuing to rise.
The MoJ also issued figures on interpreting services in court following the launch of a controversial private contract in January.
They show that Applied Language Solutions (ALS) was still failing to meet its contract targets three months after it took over responsibility for providing interpreters to all courts in England and Wales.
The firm's contract with the MoJ requires it to supply interpreters for 98% of all court and tribunal bookings.
In February, the firm had a success rate of only 65% though that had risen to 90% by April. There were 2,232 complaints about language services over the first three months of the year.
