HC Deb 26 July 1910 vol 19 c1942
Captain COOPER

asked in how many cases of agrarian crime since January, 1906, have proceedings been taken before petty sesions; in how many cases have informations been refused; and in how many cases where informations have been refused has the Attorney-General sent up a Bill to the assizes on his own initiative?


The Inspector-General informs me that between January, 1906, and 30th June last proceedings were taken at petty sessions in 156 cases of indictable agrarian offences. In twenty-nine cases informations were refused, and in Seven of these bills were sent to the assizes.
