Warwickshire Quarter Sessions

Warwickshire Quarter Sessions were held in Warwick, Mr J. S. Dugdale presiding. There was only one prisoner and the Chairman, commenting on this, said the average for the past three years had been a dozen. He hoped the others who would have come were across the water doing their duty for their country.

Lord Leigh submitted a report of the Prison Visiting Committee, and said there was a marked diminution of crime. This quarter the total committals were only 128, against 384 in the corresponding quarter last year. Two hundred and nine former boys of Weston Reformatory were at the front, and 155 from Harborne Industrial School.
