§ MR. DAVITT
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the case of an American subject named Mr. S. Deane, now of Brighton, in England, who has made representations to the Home Office with reference to alleged wrongful imprisonment in this country, will be investigated?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
Petitions were received from this man some 15 months ago during his imprisonment, but the inquiries instituted disclosed no ground for supposing him to be wrongfully convicted. The only representation that has since come from him is a letter dated yesterday, and received this morning, which will, of course, receive consideration.
