Crime: Cambridgeshire

Volume 473: debated on Thursday 13 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) crimes, (b) violent crimes, (c) robbery offences, (d) burglary offences, (e) criminal damage offences and (f) drug offences were recorded in (i) Cambridgeshire, (ii) Cumbria, (iii) Devon and Cornwall, (iv) Durham, (v) Dyfed-Powys, (vi) Gloucestershire, (vii) Lincolnshire, (viii) Norfolk, (ix) North Yorkshire, (x) North Wales, (xi) West Mercia and (xii) Wiltshire in each of the last nine years. (192454)

The available information is given in the following table.

A number of changes have been made to recorded crime in response to suggestions in the two reviews of crime statistics. Once such change is that the term ‘violent crime’ is no longer used in connection with the recorded crime statistics and we now provide figures for violence against the person.
