asked, the Home Secretary how many women have been proceeded against for infanticide since the passing of the Infanticide Act, 1922?
§ Mr. CLYNES
Figures are available only for the years 1924 to 1929. During those years 110 women were proceeded against for, or were convicted of, infanticide. The figures prior to 1924 are not separately recorded, and those for 1930 have not yet been tabulated.
