HC Deb 04 May 1937 vol 323 c955
44. Mr. Davidson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has received any report from the sub-committee appointed by the Glasgow Corporation to inquire into the question of juvenile crime in Maryhill?

The Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. Elliot)

I am informed that the Corporation have considered the statistics of juvenile crime in the Maryhill Division and have no further observations to make on the facts and figures supplied by the Chief Constable of which I am sending a copy to the hon. Member.

Mr. Davidson

In view of the great dissatisfaction in Maryhill with the high figures published with regard to juvenile crime, will not the right hon. Gentleman intervene personally and see whether something cannot be done in the matter?

Mr. Elliot

That might be regarded by the Corporation as interference.
