HC Deb 12 November 1979 vol 973 c394W
Mr. Eastham

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in the case of divorced couples with young children, how many women have been jailed for non-conformance with child access orders.

The Attorney-General

I have been asked to reply.

Precise information is not readily available. Orders requiring women to give access to their children rarely, if ever, result in imprisonment.
