Knife crime statistics evidence session

05 February 2009

The Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) hears from the UK Statistics Authority and the Government about the lessons being learned following the disputed publication of statistics relating to knife crime in December last year. Watch from 10am.

The session is likely to focus on the impact of the dispute on public trust in official statistics, and on possible tensions between the need to ensure that published statistics are accurate on the one hand and to keep the public provided with up-to-date information on the other.
