Vandalism: Bus Services

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 24 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences of criminal damage to bus shelters were recorded in (a) Wiltshire and (b) Swindon in 2007; how many (i) prosecutions and (ii) convictions resulted; and if she will estimate the number of unrecorded offences of criminal damage to bus shelters in (A) Wiltshire and (B) Swindon in 2007. (200905)

The information requested is not available centrally. Offences of criminal damage to bus shelters would be recorded under the Home Office classification ‘Other criminal damage’ and such offences cannot be separately identified from other offences recorded within that classification. For the same reason, statistics for prosecutions and convictions are not available from the court proceedings database held by the Ministry of Justice.

It is not possible to estimate the number of unrecorded offences of criminal damage to bus shelters.
