HC Deb 24 July 1991 vol 195 c595W
Sir Cyril Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are the latest published figures for crime reporting and detection in the Rochdale police area.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The information requested is not collected centrally for the Rochdale police division. I understand from the chief constable of Greater Manchester that in the first quarter of 1991 there were 6,861 recorded crimes of which 2,312 were detected.
