MR. P. O'BRIEN
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet re-considered the circumstances of the conviction of Mr. Egan, now confined in Portland Prison; and whether he has decided to order his release?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. MATTHEWS, Birmingham, E.)
I have re-considered this case. The time has not yet arrived when it would be possible to advise any mitigation of the sentence.
