HC Deb 15 November 1968 vol 773 cc165-6W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many illegal entries and incidents have been reported by the London Borough of Brent to the police during the last six months; in how many cases the offenders were apprehended; and what was the number of convictions.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

Information in the form requested is not readily available, but the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis has informed me that in the station areas corresponding most closely to the borough area there were 618 breakings into houses and other premises in the six months ended 30th September, 1968. During the same period, 173 offences of this sort were cleared up, and 146 persons arrested in connection with them.
