asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that convictions for drunkenness of boys under 18 years of age were approximately 40 per cent. higher in 1960 than in 1959; and what was the comparable figure for girls under 18 years of age.

Complete statistics of the number of offences of drunkenness for the year 1960 are not yet available, but I expect to be able to give the information shortly.
