HC Deb 20 June 1934 vol 291 cc376-7
41. Mr. POTTER

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware of the increasing number of assaults on unprotected women in London and the outskirts; and what steps he intends to take to prevent these practices?


I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that so far as separate figures are available they do not support the suggestion that crimes of this kind are increasing. So far as they can be prevented by police measures, those measures will continue to be taken.
