To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many knives were handed in to police stations during 2006 in (a) County Durham and (b) Easington constituency. (124897)

The Home Office conducted a knife amnesty from 24 May to the end of June 2006. Data from the amnesty were collected at police force level. Durham police reported that 1,062 items were handed in.
