HC Deb 24 October 1916 vol 86 cc988-9W

asked the Home Secretary how many prosecutions have taken place for violation of the Order in Council prohibiting the sale of cocaine for improper purposes; and in how many cases, if any, the source of supply has been traced to dental practitioners, either registered or unregistered?


There have been twenty-five prosecutions in the Metropolitan Police District for the violation of this Order in Council. In none was the source of supply traced to a dental practitioner. I have no information as to the number of prosecutions outside the Metropolitan Police District.
