§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, further, to his reply of 22 March, Official Report, c. 231, he will give the reasons why it is taking so long to have a breakdown of the numbers of persons charged and found guilty at the various inner city riots 12 months ago, their sentences and related information; when he expects these details to be made available; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The compilation of this information involves additional work both for the police and for this Department. It will be completed as quickly as possible.
