HC Deb 23 July 1931 vol 255 c1704W
Lieut.-Colonel MOORE

asked, the Home Secretary how many women have been proceeded against for infanticide since the passing of the Infanticide Act, 1922?


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.
