Crime Statistics

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) males and (b) females (i) were found guilty of and (ii) pleaded guilty to complicity in or assisting (A) a suicide and (B) infanticide in (1) Tamworth and (2) the west midlands in the last period for which figures are available. (80134)

Data from the court proceedings database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform shows that there were no convictions for aiding and abetting suicide in the West Midlands in 2004. Offences of complicity in or assisting infanticide cannot be separated from the offence of infanticide itself in the data held. However the records show that there were no convictions for infanticide in the west midlands in 2004. Had there been conviction data for the west midlands, we would be unable to provide a convictions figure for Tamworth constituency, as the data are not available at the level of detail required.

Figures for 2005 will be available in the autumn of 2006.
