70. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the fact that money is only one-third its pre-war value, he will introduce legislation to increase substantially the maximum fines which magistrates' courts may impose; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. R. A. Butler
