HL Deb 08 January 2003 vol 642 cc199-200WA
Lord Dholakia

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether police forces have been undertaking surveys of satisfaction for victims of racist attacks; and whether any national analysis of the satisfaction level is available. [HL605]

The Minister of State, Home Office (Lord Falconer of Thoroton)

There is a new best value indicator for 2002–03 which requires police forces to undertake surveys to determine the level of victims of racist incidents who were satisfied with the police service when dealing with the incident. This information will not be collected centrally until after May 2003.
