HC Deb 19 April 1951 vol 486 c1990
23. Mrs. Middleton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in how many cases of major crime occurring during 1950 no arrest has yet been made.

Mr. Ede

The number of crimes cleared up by arrest alone in England and Wales is not recorded, and figures of crimes known to the police and cleared up during 1950 are not yet available. Figures for 1949 were published in Criminal Statistics (England and Wales), 1949, (Cmd. 7993).

Mrs. Middleton

When will the comparable figures for 1950 be available?

Mr. Ede

About mid-summer.

Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

Do these figures include anticipation of the reply to Question No. 28?
