HC Deb 04 August 1924 vol 176 cc2549-50W

asked the Home Secretary whether he will give the House statistics showing in which countries capital punishment has been abolished, in which countries during recent years this punishment has been in abeyance although still on the Statute Book, what alternative punishments have been adopted in both groups, and the amount of crime in the various countries both before capital punishment was abolished or disused compared with those countries in which capital punishment is still in operation?


I regret that I am not in possession of the statistics the hon. Member desires.
