HC Deb 06 February 1987 vol 109 c859W
Ms. Clare Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why statistics on racial attacks are not published or made available to hon. Members; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

These statistics are not collated centrally. I refer the hon. Member to paragraph 4 of the Government reply to the third report from the Home Affairs Committee, Session 1985–86 (Cm. 45).
