asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much money was taken in fines in Crown courts and magistrates' courts, respectively, in 1974 and 1975, respectively.

Fines imposed by the Crown court are enforced and collected by magistrates' courts. The total sums for all courts received in England and Wales during 1974 and 1975 were £35,465,475 and £42,883,523 respectively. Separate figures for fines imposed by the Crown court and by magistrates' courts are not available.
