§ 54. Mr. Norman Fowler
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what amount of public funds he is expending on the inquiry into crimes of violence in England and Wales; and when he expects the inquiry to be completed.
§ Mr. Carlisle
The Institute of Criminology at Cambridge University is undertaking an inquiry into crimes of violence at an estimated cost to public funds of £27,000. A survey of current and completed research on crimes of violence and a descriptive and statistical survey of crimes of violence should each be completed early in 1972. An extension of a current study in delinquent behaviour, to obtain information on aggressive behaviour by teenage boys, will extend into 1974.
