HC Deb 26 May 1938 vol 336 cc1405-6W
Mr. C. Wilson

asked the Home Secretary whether, in the Returns relating to crime, it is possible to indicate in the case of non-indictable offences the age groups of persons charged rather than whether the offender is under or over 17 years of age?

Sir S. Hoare:

I do not think it would be practicable to include in the statistics the information asked for in respect of all non-indictable offences, but information is being collected and will be published as to the age groups of persons under 21 convicted of certain non-indictable offences.
