§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish the figures of the stops made by the Metropolitan Police under Section 24 of the Metropolitan Police Courts Act, 1839, in each of the years from 1960 to 1968, inclusive; and whether he will give the number of persons stopped, the number of persons subsequently charged, and the number convicted separately.
§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
I assume that my hon. Friend has in mind the power to stop and search conferred by Section 66 of the Metropolitan Police Act, 1839. I regret that the information he seeks is not readily available.
