UIN 8903, tabled on 4 September 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many offences where alcohol consumption was a contributory factor were recorded by Hampshire Police in each of the last three years; how many such offences took place in (a) Basingstoke, (b) Newbury and (c) Andover; and how many such cases involved repeat offenders.

The Home Office does not hold the information requested centrally.

According to the 2013/14 Crime Survey for England and Wales, there were an estimated 704,000 violent incidents where the offender was under the influence of alcohol (53% of violent incidents), in England and Wales as a whole. This is compared with around 863,000 incidents in 2010/11 (48% of violent incidents). The proportion of violent incidents perceived to involve alcohol is similar between 2010/11 and 2013/14 (not statistically significantly different).
