Answered By:

The MPS does not record data in relation to how many raids have occurred on cannabis farms.

Where an offence of cannabis production has been identified the details are recorded on the crime reporting information system (CRIS) and this shows the following number of recorded offences over the last three years:

2010-11: 1,125 2011-12: 1,133 2012-13 to date: 1,008

Total number of recorded production offences: 3,266
