Animal Welfare: Arrests

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many arrests there have been for offences in connection with animal welfare in North Shropshire since 1997. (325422)

The information 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.

The offence in connection with animal welfare is not a notifiable offence and does not form part of this collection.
