The Home Office holds and publishes data on the number of hate crimes recorded by the police in England and Wales. Data on the number of these crimes that result in a conviction are not held by the Home Office. Convictions data are the responsibility of the Ministry of Justice.

The most recently published data on hate crime by the Home Office is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hate-crime-england-and-wales-2015-to-2016

This Government is committed to tackling hate crime. The UK has a strong legislative framework to tackle hate crime. We are working across Government with police, (including National Community Tensions Team), the Crown Prosecution Service and community partners to send out a clear message that hate crime will not be tolerated and we will vigorously pursue and prosecute those who commit these crimes.
