asked the Home Secretary how many accused persons on remand were admitted to bail during the 12 months ending October, 1928; and how many have failed to surrender to their bail?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
During the year ended 31st December, 1927, which is the latest period for which figures are available, 1,052 persons remanded on bail failed to surrender and were not arrested. The returns do not show how many others were arrested after absconding or the total number of persons remanded on bail.
