Crimes of Violence: Sulphuric Acid

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 15 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences of assaults were recorded in each year since 1997 where the assailant used sulphuric acid as a weapon; how many prosecutions were brought; and how many convictions resulted. (205524)

The information requested is not collected centrally. It is not possible to identify assaults using sulphuric acid from either the recorded crime statistics collected by the Home Office or from the court proceedings data held by the Ministry of Justice.
