HC Deb 23 April 1996 vol 276 cc116-8W
Mr. Illsley

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many crimes have been recorded in rural areas in Northern Ireland in each year since 1979. [26199]

Sir John Wheeler

[holding answer 22 April 1996]The following figures refer to crimes recorded in the north and south regions. RUC statistics are held by police station area and police stations are sited in urban areas. It is therefore not possible to provide figures for totally "rural" areas.

Figures are not available prior to 1987.

Year Crimes recorded
1987 22,010
1988 19,273
1989 19,979
1990 21,233
1991 24,452
1992 27,037

Year Crimes recorded
1993 28,184
1994 28,453
