Michael Howard does not accurately represent my analysis in the Crime and Society Foundation's forthcoming discussion paper (Sorry, Polly, you're wrong, October 12). I do not argue that there are "significant flaws" with the British Crime Survey (BCS). I argue that the BCS offers a far more accurate picture of the crimes it measures than do police crime figures, which are vulnerable to changes in recording practices.
