§ 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.
