HC Deb 13 February 1996 vol 271 cc525-6W
Mr. Robert McCartney

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many police cautions for burglary have been given in the last five years. [14552]

Sir John Wheeler

I very much regret that the information is not at present available in the form requested. I am seeking to establish the means within the Royal Ulster Constabulary to ensure that it is available in future.

Unemployed persons are (a) Protestant, (b) Catholic and (c) other, what are the ratios between the categories; and what number and percentage of each were (i) male and (ii) female. [14550]

Sir John Wheeler

The 1991 census of population recorded information on the religion and employment status of individuals and results are available for the main denominations separately. Information is not presented on an amalgamated Protestant category as a specific question on this was not included in the census and the large number of small religions recorded make precise classification difficult. A comprehensive list of denominations included in the "other denominations" category is recorded on page xvi of the Northern Ireland census 1991 religion report. Requests for tables on amalgamations of individual religious denominations can be produced by the census office for Northern Ireland based on specifications supplied by users. Information on the main denominations and other groups approximating most closely that requested is provided in the table.
