HC Deb 28 February 1952 vol 496 cc195-6W
139. Sir H. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how far the cases of robbery with violence have shown increases in recent months.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

During 1951 the number of cases of robbery with violence was considerably smaller than in 1950. There have been no increases in recent months beyond the usual seasonal variations in this type of offence.
