HC Deb 29 November 1928 vol 223 c631W
Viscountess ASTOR

asked the Home Secretary the number of sexual offences against young persons which were reported to the police in 1925, 1926, and 1927 in the following categories of such offences: indecent assaults against boys under 16, indecent assaults on girls under 16, defilement of girls under 13, defilement of girls under 16, incest with girls under 16; the number in which proceedings were taken; and the result of such proceedings?


The statistical returns are not designed with a view to tabulating figures of all these offences on the bases indicated in the question. I regret therefore that the figures desired cannot be given.
