HC Deb 05 August 1890 vol 347 cc1906-7
MR. SCHWANN (Manchester, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department whether a police constable named Marr, who, at the Manchester Assizes in December, 1888, was convicted of manslaughter, and sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment, being at the same time severely censured by the Judge for having perjured himself, has since his release been re-admitted into the Force, and is at the present time serving in the D Division of the Manchester City Police, or is on the probation list, with the view of being reinstated in the Police Force; and whether he can make any representations to the Police Authority in Manchester on the subject?


Yes, Sir; it is the fact that this man is on the probation list in consequence of there being a strong feeling among the Local Authorities that he was not guilty of the offence of which he was accused. It is not the fact, as alleged, that he was severely censured by the learned Judge.

Forward to
