HC Deb 08 May 1907 vol 174 c221

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether a decision has yet been reached with reference to the case of Frederick Thomas Hemsley, who was sentenced on 10th April to five years detention at Redhill reformatory school.


I have carefully considered this case, and while I am convinced that the only object the magistrates had in view in taking the course they did was to benefit the boy, I have decided, in all the circumstances, that Hemsley may be discharged.
