HC Deb 26 February 1987 vol 111 c342W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the number of reported cases of racial incidents in the London borough of Waltham Forest in 1986; in how many cases arrests were made; in how many cases charges were brought; and how many convictions were secured.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

I am informed that 66 racial incidents were reported to the police in the London borough of Waltham Forest (including that part of Epping forest in the Chingford division) during 1986. In eight of these cases arrests were made.

Further details could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
