HC Deb 16 July 1964 vol 698 c276W
44. Mrs. Hart

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to restrict the circumstances under which a person may be sent to prison in default of paying fines, for non-payment of maintenance allowances, or for debt.

Mr. Brooke

I doubt whether there is scope for adding to the restrictions already imposed by the Magistrates' Courts Act, 1952.
