Burglary: Greater London

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many burglaries were reported in each London borough in each of the last five years; and how many (a) prosecutions and (b) convictions there were for burglary in each such borough and year. (200548)

The available data relate to the number of recorded offences of burglary and are given in the following table. I am informed that information on the number of defendants proceeded against or found guilty for an offence in each London borough are not separately identifiable from the data reported to the Ministry of Justice.
