§ 27. Mr. Temple-Morris
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department for the most recent period for which information is available, how many people were certified by juvenile courts as unruly and, as a result, remanded in custody.
§ Mr. John
The total number of certificates of unruliness issued by juvenile courts in 1978 was 3,546; 3,404 for boys and 142 for girls. The number of juveniles remanded in custody would have been slightly less than the number of certificates issued because a few juveniles would have been remanded more than once but the reduction would not be significant.
