§ 3. Mr. John Page
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prosecutions have taken place under the Litter Act during each year since the legislation was enacted; and how many of these resulted in convictions.
§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
I will, with permission, circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT, a table showing, for England and Wales, the number of persons prosecuted and the number convicted in each year.
§ Mr. Morgan
Yes, I am satisfied that the Act referred to is adequate. The hon. Gentleman will be aware of the powers in the Civic Amenities Act, 1967, in relation to this matter.
§ Following is the table:
|Persons prosecuted||Persons convicted|
|1958 (from 7th August when the Litter Act 1958 came into force)||268||262|
