HC Deb 05 May 1964 vol 694 c135W
3. Dr. Alan Glyn

asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware that judgments made by civil courts against individuals can be deliberately frustrated by these individuals moving to another address; and if he will introduce legislation to enable the police authorities to assist in the tracing of individuals in such cases.

The Attorney-General

I am aware that a defendant can sometimes evade the consequences of a judgment by moving to another address. It would however be undesirable for the police to be concerned in the recovery of civil debts.

4. Dr. Alan Glyn

asked the Attorney-General how many judgments made in civil courts during the past six months have failed to be executed.

The Attorney-General

No statistics are kept of the number of unexecuted judgments in civil courts and it would be impracticable to obtain them.
