§ Sir Anthony Grant
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the number of convictions for damage to Government property in each of the last 10 years.
§ Mr. Mellor
Information collected centrally does not distinguish offences of damaging Government property from other offences of criminal damage. The available information for indictable offences is published annually in table 5.1 of "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales, 1983" (Cmnd. 9349) and for summary offences in table S4.1(B) of supplementary tables, vol. 4.
