asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how the figure of true crime compares with that of detected crime for the years 1961 and 1962, respectively.
§ Miss Pike
The numbers of indictable offences known to the police in 1961 and 1962 were 806,900 and 896,424 respectively—an increase of 11.1 per cent.; I am circulating more detailed figures in the OFFICIAL REPORT. The numbers of indictable offences cleared up were 361,467 in 1961 and 393,647 in 1962, or 45 per cent, and 44 per cent. respectively of the numbers of indictable offences known to the police in those years.
