HC Deb 09 January 1913 vol 46 c1399W

asked how many males and females under the age of 19 were, in the first six months of 1912, committed to prison in England and Wales in default of payment of fines; and in how many of those cases the fine was 10s. or less?


No statistics giving the details mentioned in the question are available, and they could only be obtained by the individual examination of many thousands of records at the various prisons entailing more work on the prison officials than the results to be obtained would seem to justify.
