Rape

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many recorded instances of (a) rape and (b) domestic violence there were in (i) England and Wales and (ii) each police force area in each year since 1997; and what the clear-up rate for each was in each of those years. (200358)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 29 November 2007, Official Report, columns 642-46W.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) males and (b) females aged (i) under 10, (ii) 11 to 15, (iii) 16 to 19, (iv) 20 to 25, (v) 26 to 30, (vi) 31 to 40, (vii) 41 to 50, (viii) 51 to 60 and (ix) 60 years and over were recorded as the victims of rape in each of the last 10 years. (203252)

The information requested is not available centrally. The Home Office collects statistics on the number of rape offences recorded by the police but no information is available on the age of the victim.
