§ Sir Cyril Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are the latest published figures for crime reporting and detection in the Rochdale police area.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
The information requested is not collected centrally for the Rochdale police division. I understand from the chief constable of Greater Manchester that in the first quarter of 1991 there were 6,861 recorded crimes of which 2,312 were detected.
