§ MR. SHIRLEY (Yorkshire, W. R., Doncaster)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is the intention of the Government to offer a reward for the apprehension of the perpetrators of the recent Kentish Town murder, as recommended by various members of the Coroner's Jury?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
The question of offering a reward in the case of this murder is still under consideration; but, as the hon. Member may be aware, rewards are only offered by the Home Office under very exceptional circumstances.
