HC Deb 21 December 1988 vol 144 c275W
Mr. Amess

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what information he has as to how many people were prosecuted for offences related to graffiti in the latest year for which figures are availble and as to the average fine.

Mr. John Patten

It is not possible from the information held centrally to indentify prosecutions which relate to graffiti. Such offences will be included under the general offence of criminal damage.
