Dear Minister,

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.

Yours sincerely,

Sir David Norgrove
