§ MR. LABOUCHERE
asked Mr. Attorney General, Whether, in the interests of justice, it is intended to take criminal proceedings against Charles Thomas, who, in an action tried in the Queen's Bench Division, High Court of Justice, last November, was declared to have been a party to, or privy to, the forgery of the will of the late Mr. James Whalley, of Leominster?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir HENRY JAMES)
said, that he had communicated with the Director of Public Prosecutions, and found that he was making inquiries into this case. The matter required great caution in taking action upon it; for if proceedings were taken, it would lead to a very long and expensive trial. The matter would be most fully considered.
