§ 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.
