§ MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consent to amend the Return of the hon. Member for South Oxfordshire (Mr. Francis Parker) on convictions for drunkenness, by adding a column to be filled in by the number of convictions in each locality of publicans for supplying intoxicating liquor to drunken persons, or permitting drunkenness on their premises?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. STUART WORTLEY,) (who replied) Sheffield, Hallam
The Return of the hon. Member for South Oxfordshire has been ordered and could not conveniently be extended in the way desired. Moreover, the information which the hon. Member speaks of in his question appears already in the annual volume of judicial statistics. In the volume for 1890, issued last year, he will find this information on pages 25 and 32.
§ MR. STUART WORTLEY
They show by districts in counties and boroughs the number of persons proceeded against, but of convictions they show only the totals. I may say the whole question of the form of these judicial statistics is under consideration, and the subject raised in the question of the hon. Member will not be lost sight of.
