asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the figure of total indictable offences committed in England and Wales for each year since 1970, respectively; how many of these included the use of violence in each case; and what percentage of each year is regarded as having been cleared up by the police.

The information requested is published annually in " Criminal Statistics, England and Wales" (tables 2.1 and 2.7 of the volume for 1978 (Cmnd. 7670)). Information for 1979 is published in tables 1 and 3 of the Home Office statistical bulletin 4/80, a copy of which has been placed in the Library of the House.
