Question

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate she has made of the number of domestic violence related incidents that were (a) reported to the police, (b) detected and (c) prosecuted in each (i) London Borough and (ii) region or nation of the UK in each of the three full years for which figures are available.

Answer (Mr Nick Hurd)

The Office for National Statistics publishes a cross-governmental report on domestic abuse statistics in England and Wales. This report includes the number of domestic abuse incidents and crimes recorded by the police by police force area level. Data are not available at the London Borough level or for nations other than England and Wales.

The first of these publications, ‘Domestic abuse in England and Wales’ year ending March 2016’, was published in December 2016 and can be found here:
