HC Deb 08 February 2001 vol 362 c673W
Miss Geraldine Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many crimes were recorded on 2 January. [149119]

Mr. Charles Clarke

Recorded crime details are not collected centrally on a daily basis. The latest available data on recorded crime are for the year ending September 2000. These showed that there were 5,221,416 recorded crimes in England and Wales in that year.

Miss Geraldine Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many(a) vehicle crimes and (b) domestic burglaries there were in (a) April 1997 and (b) January 2001. [148977]

Mr. Charles Clarke

Details of recorded crime are no longer collected monthly. Comparisons of recorded crime figures between different dates are normally made using annual totals. The figures for the requested categories of crime, for the years ending March 1997 and September 2000, which is the most recent published data, are as follows:

England and Wales—numbers of recorded crimes
Burglaries Vehicle crimes1 Domestic
Year ending:
March 1997 1,245,052 581,985
September 20002 1,000,317 417,380
1 Theft of and from vehicles
2 Owing to the change in counting rules for recorded crime on 1 April 1998, direct comparisons cannot be made between data before and after this date. However, it has been estimated that the change in counting rules increased the number of thefts of and from vehicles counted by 1 per cent. and all burglaries by 0.1 per cent.

The number of Parenting, Child Safety and Sex Offender Orders (as introduced under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998) made, discharged or breached within pilot areas and nationally up to 30 September 20001
