§ Colonel DAY
asked the Home Secretary the number of persons who have been convicted in the Metropolitan Police area for the 12 months ended to the last convenient date for offences under the motoring laws, and give the sentences and the gross amount of fines imposed?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The number of convictions for motoring offences in the Metropolitan Police area during the 12 months ending 31st December, 1926, was 61,674. Some persons may have been convicted more than once, so that the number of persons convicted cannot be stated. The particulars asked for as to sentences and fines could not be given without an unjustifiable expenditure of time, money and labour in obtaining and summarising the information.
