Mr. Edward Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can now give figures for the number of cases known to the police in 1972 under the following heads: all crimes, murder, attempted murder, and manslaughter; and by what percentage these figures exceed or are less than the comparable figures for 1963.
§ Mr. Carlisle
Figures for offences of murder, attempted murder and manslaughter known to the police in 1972 are not yet available. The number of all offences recorded as known to the police in England and Wales in 1972 and an estimated percentage increase between 1963 and 1972 were given in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend on 25th May.—[Vol. 857, c.193.]
