HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 cc21-2W
Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received the report of his Department's working party on the observations made by a Sunday newspaper of 28th May on the provisions and operation of the Vagrants Act, 1824; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Carlisle

My right hon. Friend has been unable to identify the observations referred to. The review of the law on vagrancy and street offences has not yet been completed.
