Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many arrests on average were made at football matches in (a) each police force area and (b) England and Wales in each year since 2003. 
Alan Johnson: Data on arrests in connection with football matches are collated and reported annually on the basis of club supported and type of offence, rather than geographical location of offence. The data for part (a), therefore, are not collated centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many powers relating to cybercrime have been (a) created and (b) amended by legislation sponsored by his Department since 1997. 
We broadened the definition of the Section 3 offence to clarify that all means of interference with a computer system are criminalised-in particular ensuring that adequate provision is made to criminalise all forms of denial of service (DoS) attacks.
We increased the maximum penalty for the Section 1 offence of unauthorised access to computer material to two years to better reflect the seriousness of these offences as more and more sensitive systems and information have external connections and also to ensure that the offence is extraditable.
We added the Section 3A offence, which created a new offence of making, adapting or supplying articles for use in computer misuse offences to discourage the market in the production and distribution of hacking tools.
In the Serious Crime Act 2007 Part 2 we created a new general offence of encouraging and assisting crime. This offence covers both online and offline offending and replaced the offence of enabling unauthorised access to computer material created in the Police and Justice Act.
