HC Deb 30 October 1959 vol 612 cc6-7W
Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of murders known to the police for each month of 1959 for which figures are available.

Mr. Maclay

The number of murders made known to the police reported to me in each of the first nine months of 1959 is as follows:

February 1
April 1
May 3
June 3
July 2
September 1

These figures include cases which may consequently have been found, or may later be found, not to be murders.
