HC Deb 30 June 1980 vol 987 c429W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list the numbers of murders and bombings in Fermanagh and South Tyrone over the past 10 years.

Mr. Humphrey Atkins

Police records of murders are kept according to police divisional areas rather than counties. The division areas which equate approximately to counties Fermanagh and Tyrone are "L" and "M" respectively and the number of murders in each over the past 10 years up to 26 June is 62 in "L" division and 65 in "M" division.

Figures relating to the number of bombings are kept on a Province-wide basis and could not be obtained in the form requested except at disproportionate cost.
