§ 23. Mr. Hooson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that a maximum fine of £5 for the offence of fighting in a public place is inadequate in the light of modern earnings, and whether he will take steps to increase it.
§ Mr. Taverne
Yes. This is one of the fines which my right hon. Friend proposes to deal with in the Criminal Justice Bill which will be introduced this Session.
