HC Deb 08 October 1924 vol 177 c574W

asked the Prime Minister when he will advise the setting up of a Royal Commission to prepare a draft code which shall amend as well as consolidate the Criminal Law of England and Wales or, alternatively, to prepare draft Bills which shall consolidate and amend the various branches of that Criminal Law and provide for the abolition of obsolete or quasi-obsolete offences?


I have been asked to reply. This matter is under consideration.
