HC Deb 27 April 1961 vol 639 cc57-8W
39. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give the figures for crimes of violence against the person for 1960 in the same form as set out in Appendix C of the Barry Report on Corporal Punishment.

Mr. Vosper

The provisional number of offences, of the kinds included in Appendix C, known to the police in 1960 was 15,759. I regret that figures for the numbers of persons found guilty of such offences are not yet available.
