NRM Referrals (478A/23)


Thank you for your previous response regarding NRM data and cannabis cultivation. It certainly is very much appreciated and a valuable contribution to the project. In order to keep my investigation up to date and relevant, using the details below, could I please have the data from 2022.

I am currently conducting an exploratory study to investigate the relationship between Albanian nationals and cannabis cultivation in the UK. Using data from NRM referral records, could you please inform me of the number of NRM referrals, broken down into nationalities, which concern cannabis cultivation. Could I please have the data from 2022 presented in a similar format as seen below.

Please find attached our response.

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large-scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
