§ Mr. Cohen
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the occasions over the past three years when the police have recommended to organisers of motorcycle gatherings that the event be cancelled; for what reason the recommendation in each case was made; what was the response of the organisers; on the occasions when the event subsequently went ahead, if there were any arrests; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Boateng
This information is not collated centrally. The decision to recommend cancellation of an event on public order or public safety grounds is an operational matter for the local chief officer of police.
