Alcoholic Drinks: Crime

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people were arrested for offences related to alcohol abuse in (a) Romford, (b) Greater London and (c) Essex in 2007. (186914)

The information requested is not held centrally. The arrests collection undertaken by the Ministry of Justice provides data on persons arrested for recorded crime (notifiable offences), by age group, gender, ethnicity, and main offence group, for example violence against the person, sexual offences, robbery, burglary, etc. However, from these data we are not able to identify specific offences related to alcohol.
