Clear-up Rates

Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 28 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the number of crimes notified to the police but not cleared up in (a) 1997 and (b) 2004. (80177)

There were 3,340,094 undetected crimes in England and Wales in 1997 and 4,245,654 in 2004. The two figures are not comparable because of changes to the detections counting rules implemented in April 1999.
