Public Order Offences: Photography

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have been (a) arrested for and (b) charged with offences related to taking photographs in public places in the last 12 months. (291680)

The information requested on arrests is not collected centrally.

The arrests collection held by the Home Office covers arrests for recorded crime (notifiable offences) only, broken down at a main offence group level, covering categories such as violence against the person and robbery.

Offences related to taking photographs in public places are not notifiable offences and do not form part of this collection.
