§ 16. Mr. SHEPHERD
asked the Home Secretary how many cases of death from exposure or starvation have been reported by the police each month during the past year up to the latest available date?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
No such returns are made by the police. The hon. Member will find some information on this subject in the Judicial Statistics, Table XXIV, Verdicts Returned, column 11. In 1927 there were verdicts of death from want, exposure, etc., in the case of 76 men and 24 women. Later statistics are not yet available.
