§ 40. Mr. DAY
asked the Home Secretary the number of appeals made to him from the decisions of the discipline board under the Police (Appeals) Act, 1927, that were successful?
§ Mr. DAY
Is it not a fact that the reason why some of the appeals were not successful is that the people were not legally represented?
Following is the information:
police prosecution during 1935 and the approximate average daily police strength during that year, the figures for each of the counties mentioned are: Warwickshire, 38.3; Derbyshire, 15.7; Lancashire, 9.9.
§ Captain STRICKLAND
Does my hon. Friend attribute this high percentage to the criminal proclivities of the Warwickshire motorists or to misplaced zeal on the part of anti-motorist police?
