HC Deb 12 July 1923 vol 166 cc1555-6

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many cases of burglary occurred in Sheffield during 1921 and 1922, respectively; and will he also give the number in respect of which no arrests were made?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Bridgeman)

I am informed that in 1921 there were 23 burglaries recorded and no persons charged in respect of 19 of them, and in 1922 41 burglaries and no persons charged in respect of 36; but that three of the persons arrested in 1922 were undoubtedly responsible for nearly all the burglaries committed.
