HC Deb 05 June 1907 vol 175 cc654-5
MR. T. F. RICHARDS (Wolverhampton, W.)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the case of two brothers, Divers Horton and John Robert Horton, who were sentenced to three months' imprisonment each at the Rutland quarter sessions for stealing one pint of milk; and whether, in view of the character of the sentence and of the fact that one of the prisoners has never been convicted before, he will, under the circumstances, remit the remainder of the sentence, seeing that these men have already been in prison six weeks.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) No representation has been made to me in this case other than the Question of the hon. Member. I am making inquiry into it.
