HC Deb 25 March 1892 vol 2 c1811
MR. BLANE (on behalf of Mr. CUNINGHAME GRAHAM,) Lanark, N.W.

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if it is a fact that, at the trial of the alleged Anarchists at Walsall, the magistrate stated in open Court that there was no evidence against some of the prisoners except such as was derived from letters written by the men themselves in their cells, at the instigation of the police and under the belief that one of the prisoners had betrayed the rest; and is such evidence admissible in a Court of Justice?


I must respectfully decline to express any opinion in reference to a case pending before a Court of Justice.
