HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 cc13-4W
Mr. Robin F. Cook

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will publish in the Official Report a table listing the number of prosecutions and convictions of seamen on a British ship for homosexual conduct in each of the past five years.

Mr. Clinton Davis

The information is not available. The criminal statistics of these offences maintained by the Home Office do not distinguish between merchant seamen and other occupations.
