HC Deb 17 July 1893 vol 14 c1706
SIR C. CAMERON (Glasgow, College)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the case of "Alabone v. Morton," and to the following words in the Judgment of Mr. Justice Wright:— It is to be hoped that the proper authorities will take steps to enforce the Apothecaries Act against both parties, and consider whether proceedings of another kind should be taken against the defendant, whose fraud and false pretences are established by the evidence in this case, so far as that evidence can be relied on "; and whether, considering the nature of the fraud and false pretences referred to by the learned Judge, he will direct the steps recommended by him to be taken?


It is not quite clear whether the Society of Apothecaries intend to use their power; but I have given instructions that the matter should be laid before the Public Prosecutor, with a view to his taking proceedings either independently or in conjunction with the Society.
