§ MR. BOWEN ROWLANDS (Cardiganshire)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his attention had been called to a paragraph in that day's Daily News, in reference to the trial at Ruthin of the prisoners charged with having been concerned in the Llangwm riots. It was stated that—The wife of one of the defendants having died, permission for him to go home was asked; but as the prosecution opposed it the Bench could not permit him to do so?He asked, whether this prosecution was being conducted by or on behalf of Her Majesty's Government; and whether they would not, if the statement was true, take notice of such inhuman conduct?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
, in reply, said, the matter was entirely new to him, and he had not had time to inquire into the facts. He must, therefore, ask the hon. Member to give Notice of the Question.
