HC Deb 23 January 1986 vol 90 c252W
22. Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his Department has carried out any studies of the factors which make it increasingly likely that a person will become a victim of a crime of violence; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

Yes. Data from the British crime survey show that over the country as a whole the chances of becoming a victim of a crime of violence are quite small, and that the highest risk group are young, single males living in the inner cities who go out a lot, particularly in the evenings and at weekends.
