Andrew Stephenson – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Andrew Stephenson on 2014-03-17.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many criminal offences by foreign-born nationals were recorded in Pendle constituency in each of the last five years.

Norman Baker

The Home Office does not hold data on the nationality of offenders, and so cannot provide data on the number of offences committed by foreign-born nationals that were recorded by police in Pendle.

The Home Office collects aggregate data on the number of offences recorded by the police, available at police force area and Community Safety Partnership level. However, we do not hold details about the people responsible for these offences.

The Ministry of Justice collects details on the number of offenders and offender characteristics, but does not collect information on the number of offences that these offenders commit.
