HC Deb 18 April 1989 vol 151 cc89-90W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from the chief constable of Wiltshire as to the number of (i) soldiers and (ii) civilians arrested by Wiltshire constabulary in (a) Salisbury and (b) Amesbury and subsequently charged with being drunk and disorderly or causing a breach of the peace in each of the past 12 months.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

The information available centrally relates to the number of persons found guilty or cautioned for offences of drunkenness in the Wiltshire police force area in 1987. This information was published in Home Office statistical bulletin 31/88, a copy of which is in the Library.

To produce such information for each month of 1987 would involve disproportionate cost. Information is not collected centrally on the occupation of persons found guilty or cautioned nor can the area breakdown requested be given. Information for 1988 is not yet available.
