§ Mr. Terlezki
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what has been the percentage increase in burglaries in Cardiff to the last available figure; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mellor
The figures collected centrally relate to police force areas and are published in "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales" (table 2.5 of the issue for 1985, Cmnd. 10). In the 12 months ending 30 September 1986 the South Wales police recorded 2 per cent. fewer offences of burglary than in the preceding 12 months.
