§ Mr. Touhig
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list in percentage terms the main causes of injury in incidents of violence against persons in the last available year. 
§ Mr. Maclean
The information is not available in the form requested. Such information as is available relates to offences of homicide and firearms offences. Statistics on offences currently recorded as homicide by apparent method of killing are published in table 4.3. of "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales 1994". Table 3.8 of the same publication gives figures for overall notifiable offences in which firearms were reported to have caused injury. A copy of the Criminal Statistics publication is available in the Library.
