§ 15. Major GLYN
asked the Home Secretary in how many instances during the last three years have verdicts of murder been returned by coroners without any subsequent arrest and trial of any individual taking place; and in how many of such cases have the criminal investigation department of Scotland Yard been concerned in the inquiries to trace the murderer?
§ Mr. CLYNES
I am not in a position to give the information desired, and to collect it specially, in the form suggested, would involve an expenditure of time and labour among police forces and elsewhere that could not be justified.
