§ MR. G. C. T. BARTLEY
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General whether he is aware that, in defiance of 55 Vic, c. 4 (Betting and Loans (Infants) Act), money lenders are in the habit of sending letters to infants, especially in the Army, inviting them to borrow money, and that the police decline to prosecute; and whether he will consider the advisability of directing the Public Prosecutor to prosecute in cases that are brought before him?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir R. WEBSTER,) Isle of Wight
My attention has not been called to the facts mentioned in the first paragraph of my hon. Friend's Question. If he will bring the circumstances of any case before me I will consider whether I can take any action in the matter.
