HC Deb 05 July 1938 vol 338 c164
12. Mr. Cassells

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of cases in Scottish courts where the aid of psychoanalysts was enlisted by the presiding judge in cases where juvenile delinquents were concerned during the three years ended January, 1938?

Mr. Colville

I regret that the information is not available.

Mr. Cassells

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the personal undertaking given by his predecessor in office when the Criminal Procedure Bill was discussed in Committee, and can he inform the House as to the instructions which have emanated from the Crown Office in connection with this problem?

Mr. Colville

I must ask the hon. Gentleman to give me notice of that question.
