HC Deb 27 June 1927 vol 208 cc48-9W

asked the Home Secretary the total number of persons convicted, fined, and imprisoned, respectively, under the Emergency Powers; and the number, if any, still in prison at any given recent date, showing males and females, respectively, in each instance?


The figures asked for in the first part of the question were given in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Gateshead (Mr. Beckett) On 25th May. (OFFICIAL REPORT, Cols. 2009–10.)

The number of persons detained for offences arising out of the emergency is 36, all of whom were convicted under the ordinary law and not under the Emergency Regulations. All are males; 10 are serving terms of penal servitiude, 25 are in prison and one is in a Borstal Institution.
