HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 c1576
17. Mr. DIXEY

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, having regard to the unsatisfactory nature of the criminal law with regard to the question of insanity and the somewhat contrary decisions of the Courts in respect to the same, the Government will consider introducing legislation to deal with the matter at any early date?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Arthur Henderson)

I do not at present contemplate proposing any legislation on this subject.
