HC Deb 20 April 1931 vol 251 c604
60. Mr. DAY

asked the Attorney-General the number of convictions that have been obtained under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1916; and can he state how many times the fiat has been granted or refused in these cases?


No record exists of cases affected by the Act of 1916, which merely extends the provisions of the Act of 1906. The number of convictions under both Acts is 569. The fiat has been granted in 783 cases and refused in 52 cases.
