Crime: North Yorkshire

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what percentage of crime in North Yorkshire was cleared up in each year since 1987. [197127]

Mr. Coaker: The requested information is given in the following tables.

Offences which are ‘cleared up’ are referred to as detections.

Recorded crime statistics for North Yorkshire police force, 1987 to 2006-07

(1) The offence coverage was extended and counting rules revised from 1998-99. This will have had an effect on the number of detections recorded. Figures from that date are not comparable with those for 1997.
(2) The data in this table is prior to the introduction of the National Crime Recording Standard (NCRS). These rates are not directly comparable with those for later years.

(1) The data in this table takes account of the introduction of the National Crime Recording Standard (NCRS) in April 2002.
These rates are not directly comparable with those for earlier years.
(2) It should be noted that non-sanction detections that contribute to the percentage change in detection rates have fallen in recent years reflecting a significant shift by many police forces away from recording detections of crime where no further action is taken. For this reason overall detections rates over time are not fully comparable. From 1 April 2007 the rules governing recording of non-sanction detections were revised to reduce the scope within which they can be claimed to a very limited set of circumstances.

Crime: Young People

Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the Answer of 20 November 2007, Official Report, column 677W, on crime: young people, (1) whether any (a) handouts and (b) powerpoint presentations were prepared for this meeting; [173140]

(3) if she will list the invitees for the follow-up seminar; [173142]

(4) if she will place a copy in the Library of the recommendations; [173143]

(5) whether any (a) agenda or (b) minutes was produced at the seminar. [173144]

Mr. Coaker: The Youth Crime Seminar on 8 November 2007 was held as a series of events on youth crime, as part of the preparation on the youth
21 Apr 2008 : Column 1469W
crime action plan for publication summer 2008. The action plan aims to deliver results across youth crime prevention, youth justice as well as cross cutting themes on youth victimisation and youth violence. There were no formal minutes produced—instead, officials who were present took note of the points raised so that they could be fed into discussion during the development of the Youth Crime Action Plan. The seminar was followed up by the key Departments contacting those who attended as part of the work to get views and inputs into the Youth Crime Action Plan. A future date and attendees list for any forthcoming seminar has not yet been confirmed.
