Volume 505: debated on Wednesday 10 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) robberies, (b) violent incidents and (c) drug offences were recorded as taking place on university campuses in England and Wales in each of the last five years. (312105)

The information requested cannot be provided as specifics of offence location are not routinely reported to the Home Office.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) offences and (b) violent offences were committed between 3 am and 6 am in each year since 1997. (313018)

The information requested cannot be provided as data on the time offences were committed are not routinely reported to the Home Office.

However, there is a Home Office online report on crime trends since the introduction of the Licensing Act 2003 that was based on a special data collection between October 2004 and November 2006. This indicates that there is some increase in the more serious violent crimes between the hours of 3 am and 6 am but that these accounted for only a very small proportion of a declining total.
