The commission was chaired by Sir Nicholas Montagu, a former chair of the Inland Revenue, who was joined by a board of six commissioners with extensive charity, economic and fiscal expertise. NCVO provided secretariat support for the commission.   The commission published its report in July 2019.

Crime in England and Wales: year ending June 2019

There were also increases in some of the less frequently occurring but higher-harm types of violence, including offences involving knives or sharp instruments.
