HC Deb 03 June 1985 vol 80 c22W
Mrs. Renee Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have been convicted of murder since 1955 after ending the life of a close relative or friend in seriously ill health; and if he will list the range of sentences which were imposed for these offences.

The information requested is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. The available information is published annually in "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales", in tables 4.4 and 4.8 of the volume for 1983 (Cmnd. 9349).
