HC Deb 14 June 1920 vol 130 c896W
Major M. WOOD

asked the Secretary for Scotland the number of apprehensions in Edinburgh and Glasgow for the first five months of this year for all crimes and offences (including breaches of the peace and offences involving drunkenness) where the accused was under the influence of liquor when apprehended; and the percentage of such cases as compared with the total number of apprehensions for all such crimes and offences?


The number of apprehensions were: in Edinburgh, 2,299; in Glasgow, 12,243. I am not quite clear as to the meaning of the second part of the question, but, assuming that my hon. and gallant Friend refers to the percentage as compared with all apprehensions in Edinburgh and Glasgow, respectively, the figures are: Edinburgh, about 76; and Glasgow, about 56 per cent.
