  HO73/3 extract from Statute of Westminster; this source is another extract from the same document from which Source 2 was taken. The whole document, over 130 pages long, is a discussion of Anglo-Saxon and medieval crime prevention, as part of an enquiry into Police in the 19th century (see Gallery Prevention 1750-1900). In this extract the author makes his own opinions very clear.
