HC Deb 09 March 1972 vol 832 c377W
44. Mr. Edward Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is now in a position to state how many persons were charged with murder in 1971; how many were found guilty; and by what percentage these figures are less than or exceed the comparable figures for the year before capital punishment was abolished.

Mr. Carlisle

The 1971 murder figures, as in previous years, will not be available until the summer.
