David Lammy has called on the authorities to reveal how many criminal hate crimes have been recorded. Last week he asked Home Secretary Amber Rudd to explain why hate crime had risen by 30 per cent in the 12 months to June. The London Mayor claimed in June that there were up to 300 hate crimes a day, compared to 150 just a month before in the run up to the EU referendum. Mr Lammy said: What is so worrying is the increase we have been seeing in racist, sexist, homophobic and xenophobic incidents. I want to know if there has been a rise in hate crime on the governments own definition. I want to know how many hate crimes have been recorded by the police and why are these numbers being kept secret. It is outrageous for the Home Office to say that no offence has been taken and that the police will not release certain crime data Image: Getty, The figures, which Labour MP Simon Danczuk said would help the Government do a better job, showed a big increase in the offences of race, religious or ethnic hatred, harassment or threats. They also showed a 40 per cent increase in sexual offences including indecent exposure and voyeurism. Meanwhile, the number of hate crimes against Jewish people had fallen 20 per cent. The Home Office refused to release any figures on the matter claiming it was preferable for them to be published in private and only revealed publicly a year after an incident when there is a higher volume of data available Image: REUTERS, A Home Office spokesperson said only that it published the latest crime figures in accordance with Freedom of Information rules. Speaking about Mr Lammys comments Mr Danczuk added: It would be good for the government to do a better job at getting the truth out about hate crime and it would also be useful if the figures could be published. He said Mr Lammy was making a very important point as he added: And these figures would be useful if they could be shared with MPs to help them scrutinise government policy. Labour MP John Mann said Mr Lammy should put facts and figures before attacking government policy. Mr Lammys comments are the latest in a series of attacks on the Governments record on tackling hate crime. Last week, a Tory MP attacked Home Secretary Amber Rudd over the rising hate crime figures.
