Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what work has been done to map levels of recorded crime in a given geographical area against different indicators of social deprivation in the last five years. 
In 2008, the Home Office published an analysis of recorded crime in local authority districts by type of area. Crime varies by area according to factors such as levels of social deprivation. These variations were explored using recorded crime by grouping local authority districts
into clusters in relation to their population characteristics, such as the nature of employment and industry and socioeconomic characteristics, from the 2001 census (see Section 6.4, Crime in England and Wales 2007/08, http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/crimeew0708.html).
This website allows users to download the recorded crime tables. This provides users with the recorded crime figures which they may then use for mapping levels of recorded crime against different indicators of social deprivation.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department with reference to the supplementary table, Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership areas: Recorded crime for seven key offences and BCS comparator 2007-08 to 2008-09 in the Home Office Statistical Bulletin, Crime in England and Wales 2008-09, for what reasons the number of total recorded offences are not provided for each Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership. 
Alan Johnson: Following the introduction of Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRP) under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, data were only collected for six key offences for 1999-2000. From 2000-01 onwards data were collected for all offences at CDRP level but the supplementary tables continued to concentrate on the key offences.
The Home Office also makes available crime rates per head of population (including rates for total crime) at CDRP level in the form of crime maps for the years 2002/03 to 2008/09. This can be accessed at:
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department with reference to Table 7.12 in the Home Office Statistical Bulletin, Crime in England and Wales 2008-09, how many offences of (a) wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm (GBH) and (b) wounding or inflicting GBH without intent were carried out with a knife in 2008-09. 
It should be noted that GBH offences for 2008-09 will not be comparable with those published for 2007-08. This is due to a change in the clarification rules for recording GBH with intent, and a change in the definition of GBH without intent. Under advice from the National Statistician the offences of GBH with and without intent and ABH and other injury were combined when published.
|Number of GBH and ABH offences involving a knife or sharp instrument recorded by the police for 2008-09( 1)|
|Police force||Inflicting GBH with intent||Inflicting GBH without intent||Actual bodily harm and other injury||Total ABH and GBH Offences|
|(1) Includes racially or religiously aggravated wounding or inflicting GBH.|
