Mr. Coaker: The arrests data held by the Ministry of Justice only provide information on persons arrested for recorded crime (notifiable offences) by age group, gender, ethnicity and main offence group. Aggregated data, collected centrally from the 43 police force areas in England and Wales, do not record the circumstances of the offence leading to an arrest.
Mr. Coaker: From the information collected on recorded crime, it is not possible to identify those offences which are homophobic hate crimes. Such crimes are not specifically defined by statute and details of the individual circumstances of offences do not feature in the recorded crime statistics.

1. The Identity and Passport Service (IPS) does not record data in the format requested.
