Volume 707: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many break-ins, robberies or burglaries involving invasion of people's homes when they are present there have been in Northern Ireland in the past 12 months; how many charges have been brought in relation to them; whether there is a pattern to such crimes; and what are the reasons for their frequency. [HL1223]

That is an operational matter for the chief constable. I have asked him to reply directly to the noble Lord, and a copy of his letter will be placed in the Library of the House.
