asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give the number of offences recorded as known to the police and the number cleared up in England and Wales in 1974; and how these figures compare with 1973.
The number of offences recorded as known to the police in England and Wales in 1974 was 1,635,983; and 643,461, or 39 per cent. of the offences known, were cleared up. The following table compares the figures for 1974 with those for 1973:—carried out on the work of the Kirkby community Trust; by whom; at what cost they are being undertaken: and if he will publish the results.
I understand that the Kirkby Community Trust is a voluntary organisation in Knowsley seeking to help unemployed young people. No arrangements have been made for the central Government to evaluate and assess its work.
