HC Deb 05 March 1987 vol 111 c687W
33. Mr. Maclennan

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his latest estimate of the incidence of theft from private property; and how this compares with the position in 1983.

Mr. Mellor

Statistics of notifiable offences recorded by the police do not always identify where the theft took place. Separate figures are available for burglary in a dwelling, burglary in other building, theft in a dwelling and theft from shops. The detailed analysis by type of offence is published annually in the Command Paper "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales" (tables 2.10 and 2.12 of the issue for 1985, Cm. 10).
