HC Deb 28 June 1906 vol 159 c1139

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether ho can state why, in the recent Return under the Prosecution of Offences Acts, 1879 to 1884, under the heading of Defaulting Solicitors, one case is referred to as Rex v.—, acquitted, whilst in all other cases the names of acquitted persons are published.


The name of the solicitor in question is given in its proper place on page 15 of Return. The Director of Public Prosecutions very properly avoided giving it special prominence in the introductory note from which the hon. Member quotes.
