§ Colonel DAY
asked the Home Secretary the number of prosecutions that have taken place in the County of London for the 12 months ended to the last convenient date for cruelty to animals, and the number of convictions recorded, giving the particulars of such prosecutions and the penalties imposed?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The particulars available relate, not to the County of London but to the Metropolitan Police District, and also the City of London. In 1926, 2,058 persons were prosecuted; 1,213 were convicted; 1,190 were fined; 23 were imprisoned without the option of a fine.
