68. Lieut.-Colonel Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in the last 12 months for which figures are available, how many appeals have been made to London Sessions by motorists sentenced to imprisonment for driving while under the influence of drink or drugs; in how many of these cases was a fine substituted for imprisonment; in how many cases was the term of imprisonment increased; and in how many was the sentence confirmed.

Mr. Ede

The number of such appeals in 1946 was seven: in three a fine was substituted, and in four the sentence of imprisonment was confirmed; in none was the term of imprisonment increased.
