The UK Statistics Authority was asked by the Men and Boys Coalition to consider your use of statistics on domestic violence in a parliamentary debate on 16 July. I enclose a copy of our reply to the Coalition.
I welcome plans by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to in future include figures on the sex of perpetrators of partner abuse against men and women separately.
I am copying this letter to the Acting Chief Statistician at the Home Office, the Director of Public Policy Analysis at ONS, and the UK Statistics Authority’s Director General for Regulation.
