HL Deb 10 December 2001 vol 629 c173WA
Lord Bradshaw

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many cases of scratching windows of trains were detected by the British Transport Police in the last 12 months for which figures are available; and how these cases were disposed of by the police or by the courts. [HLl764]

Lord Falconer of Thoroton:

The British Transport Police (BTP) does not separately identify window etching within its records on graffiti. As stated in my previous Answer on 20 November (Official Report, WA 131) 200 cases involving graffiti were detected by the BTP in the year 2000. The BTP does not hold central records on the final outcome of each case and such figures could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
