Abstract: The Motion before the House was: "That Semi-Responsibility should be recognised in our Criminal Code.'' Professor A. Mamo, B.A., LL.D., kindly consented to take the Chair. Mr. J . Brincat, proposer, stated that in the history of our Criminal Law we find that on various occasions attempts were made to introduce a provision in our Criminal Code to deal with the case of semi-responsibility. In 1850, Sir Adriano Dingli proposed the incorporation of such a provision, and so aid. Sir Arturo Mercieca in 1909. The proposer held that the opinion of two such eminent jurists was of great weight and constituted a clear proof of the need of recognising such a theory.
