§ Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson
asked the Prime Minister on average, what proportion of the 35 letters she receives on capital punishment weekly are in favour of its return, and what proportion are against.
§ The Prime Minister
A clear majority of those who choose to write to me on the subject are in favour of the return of capital punishment. There is of course a wide variation of views on the offences for which capital punishment should be available to the courts.
