The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish a table showing (a) the number of murders made know to the police and (b) the number of cases with persons traced for both Scotland overall and each police force in each of the past four years.

The required table is as follows:year 1981–82, were unable to accept firm job offers before their school leaving dates; and whether he has received representations about this.

Information on which an estimate could be based is not available. In the last 18 months I have received six representations.
