HC Deb 19 April 1994 vol 241 c453W
Mr. Byers

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many racial incidents were reported to police forces in England and Wales in 1993.

Mr. Charles Wardle

Police forces are required to provide this information at the end of the fiscal year rather than the calendar year. The number of racial incidents recorded by each police force in England and Wales for the year April 1993 to March 1994 will be published once all the figures have been received and collated.
