(1) These data are provided on the principal offence basis.
(2) Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the police forces and courts. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.

Animal Experiments: Protests

Andrew Rosindell: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many animal rights extremists have been arrested over the past 12 months; [159241]

(2) whether there have been any arrests of animal rights extremists since May; [159242]

(3) what steps the Government are taking to address violence perpetrated by animal rights extremists. [159243]

Mr. Coaker: The Home Office does not formally collect data on arrests of animal rights extremists. However, through the Government strategy to eradicate the threat from animal rights extremists there has been a number of police operations, arrests and significant convictions of animal rights extremists which has led to a corresponding fall in violent activity by these extremists.

I refer the hon. Gentleman to my reply of 10 October 2007, Official Report, column 640W, when I reiterated our commitment to eradicating the threat of animal rights extremism which is backed up by a robust interdepartmental strategy centred on an improved law enforcement approach.

Assaults on Police

Mr. Vara: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many assaults on (a) police officers and (b) police community support officers there were in each of the last 10 years, broken down by police force area. [158428]

Mr. McNulty: The numbers of serious and other assaults on police officers and operational police staff are published each year in the HMIC annual report and have been given in the following table.
