§ MR. W. THORNE (West Ham, S.:)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware of the sentence of two months imprisonment passed upon G. H. Fletcher by the Sheffield stipendiary for addressing meetings in the public parks; and whether, in view of the character of the sentence and Fletcher's previous good character, he will take steps to reduce the sentence.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) I am making inquiries into this case, and I will inform the hon. Member of the result.
