To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 18 October (HL Deb, col 616), what steps they are taking to record hate crimes against people with learning difficulties and autism separately from crimes against people with other disabilities.

The Home Office does not currently mandate police forces to disaggregate disability hate crime.

However, forces are free to record this information locally. We are working closely with stakeholders to improve our understanding of this form of hate crime, and this work will continue to inform our policy on this matter.
