The Home Office’s Commercial Victimisation Survey (CVS) estimates thefts from vehicles amongst business premises included in the survey each year. However, it is not possible to identify the type of vehicles involved and figures cannot be produced for Suffolk as the sample is not designed to yield sub-national estimates.

The Home Secretary regularly meets with his Cabinet colleagues to discuss areas of mutual interest.
