Crimes Against Public Morality

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences of committing an act outraging public decency have been recorded in each year since 1997; and what percentage of these offences (a) resulted in court proceedings against suspected perpetrators, (b) led to a conviction and (c) resulted in a sanction detection. (195990)

The information requested is not available. Offences of ‘committing an act outraging public decency’ are recorded in the ‘other offences against the state and public order’ offence classification and cannot be separately identified from other offences within that classification. As a result, information on the percentage which resulted in court proceedings and convictions for those offences cannot be provided.
