HC Deb 03 July 1952 vol 503 c620

The following Question stood upon the Order Paper:


To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of crimes, accompanied by violence, for which sentences were imposed during the year 1947 and the year 1951, respectively.

Sir T. Moore

In view of the remarks made yesterday by the Lord Chief Justice on the question of corporal punishment, my Question seems to have gained special significance. Can an answer be given to it now, Sir?

Mr. Speaker

No. We have not reached that Question.
