Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences were recorded under the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006 in each year since its entry into force, broken down by offence; 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. (196019)

The information requested is not available. Offences recorded under the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006 are included within the ‘Possession of Weapons’ 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.
