House Burglaries

Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many house burglaries were reported in 2005; and how many reports subsequently led to a conviction. (75393)

There were 304,400 recorded offences of domestic burglary in England and Wales in 2005. It is not possible to identify how many of these led to a conviction. This is because recorded crime deals with offences and court proceedings deal with defendants and the two data sets cannot be directly compared.
