HC Deb 20 December 1989 vol 164 c285W
41. Mr. Hood

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give details of the numbers of convictions recorded last year for violent crime in Scotland where alcohol was directly or indirectly involved; and if he will make a statement.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

This information is not available in that form, but alcohol has been generally known to be a factor in many cases involving crimes of violence.
