HC Deb 10 July 1958 vol 591 cc41-2W
58. Mr. N. Pannell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what date he made a grant to the Cambridge Department of Criminal Science to assist it in its investigation into crimes of violence; and when he expects to receive its report.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The Home Office makes an annual grant towards the cost of the research on the causes of delinquency and the treatment of offenders carried out by the Department of Criminal Science at Cambridge. The Department has been working on several projects of interest to the Home Office and the grant is not appropriated to any one of them. I understand that the Department expects to be able to produce the final report on the study of crimes of violence in the Metropolitan Police District in the first half of 1959.
