asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in respect of table 2.8, classification numbers 28 to 31 of "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales, 1980", what is the average value of property recovered for each classification.

The average value of property recovered per offence in which property was stolen can be calculated from the figures given in the first, second and fourteenth columns of table 2.8, "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales, 1980", Cmnd. 8376. The average value of property recovered per offence for which some property was recovered could be obtained only at disproportionate cost, because the number of offences for which property is recovered is not collected centrally.
