HC Deb 11 May 1908 vol 188 c726
MR. RIDSDALE (Brighton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been directed to the evidence given in a case of murderous assault lately committed at Sackville Road, Hove, in which it was stated that the ground of quarrel was the non-payment of a sum of £15 put on by one man for the other at a club; if he can state the name of the club; where the alleged transactions were carried on; and whether he will direct the attention of the authorities to that institution.


I have obtained a report relating to the assault mentioned by my hon. friend, and find that the man who committed it is now under remand on the charge of feloniously wounding with intent to murder. While the case is sub judice I do not think it would be right for me to discuss any incidents of it.


Can the right hon. Gentleman give the name of the club?


Yes, Sir. The Hove Conservative Club.
