HC Deb 26 July 1915 vol 73 c1970
29. Sir W. BYLES

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that in the year 1914, out of 102 persons charged with murder, twenty men and three women were convicted and sentenced to death; and will he say in how many of these cases was the sentence carried out?


The figures in my hon. Friend's question are correct; the sentence of death was executed in the case of fourteen men and no women.
