HC Deb 24 June 1971 vol 819 c315W
30. Mr. Fitch

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many women have been imprisoned for offences under the Street Offences Act since it became operative.

Mr. Carlisle

In the three years ended 31st December, 1970, 766 women were sentenced to imprisonment for offences under Section 1 of the Street Offences Act, 1959. I regret that corresponding figures are not readily available for earlier years.
