HC Deb 23 November 1938 vol 341 cc1773-4W
Mr. Turton

asked the Home Secretary the number of cases in which the examining justices granted legal aid certificates to persons committed for trial and subsequently sentenced to Borstal detention by courts of assize or quarter sessions during the last five years; and the number of defence certificates granted, respectively, by committing justices, by quarter sessions, and by courts of assize in the case of persons subsequently sentenced by these courts to Borstal detention?

Sir S. Hoare

I regret that this information is not available. Information is published each year as to the number of certificates granted, but the statistics do not show how many of the persons granted certificates were subsequently sentenced to Borstal training and how many were dealt with in other ways.
