14 and 15.

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) the total number of cases dealt with and the number of convictions in the juvenile court for Maryhill division for the years 1935 and 1936, respectively;

(2) the total amount of fines imposed in the juvenile court of Maryhill division for the years 1935 and 1936, respectively?

As the reply involves a table of figures I will circulate it, with the hon. Member's permission, in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

When circulating the report will the right hon. Gentleman keep in mind the fact that I received a promise from the late Secretary of State to make an inquiry in regard to this division as to the large number of juveniles who were being prosecuted?

If the hon. Member has any representations to make to me after seeing the answer, I shall be glad to receive them.

Following is the table of figures:

Year.Number of cases tried.Number of cases in which persons dealt with found guilty of an offence.Total amount of fines imposed.
