HC Deb 26 November 1937 vol 329 cc1570-1W
Mr. Fleming

asked the Home Secretary how many domestic servants were prosecuted in the years ending 31st October, 1936 and 1937, respectively, for obtaining situations by means of false or fraudulent certificates of character?

Sir S. Hoare

Statistics for 1937 are not yet available. The number of prosecutions for offences under the Servants' Characters Act, 1792, was 25 in 1936 and 21 in 1935. These figures, however, include all offences under that Act. Separate figures for the particular offence referred to are not available.
