HC Deb 13 March 1986 vol 93 cc534-5W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prosecutions were brought in during the years 1980 to 1984 against retailers under section 7 of the Children and Young Persons Act for selling cigarettes to children.

Mr. Mellor

The information available to me, which may be incomplete, is published annually in "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales, Supplementary Tables, Volume 1" (table S1.1(A) of the issue for 1984 under offence classification 144 and corresponding tables for earlier years).
