HC Deb 30 April 1888 vol 325 c907
MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Government will consider the propriety of advising the Crown to exercise its prerogative of mercy, and remit the additional sentences imposed by the County Court Judges upon the prisoners who appealed to them, under the provisions of "The Criminal Law and Procedure (Ireland) Act, 1887," against the sentences passed upon them by the Resident Magistrates?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

No, Sir; I cannot enter into any engagement of the kind with the hon. Gentleman.
