§ MR. T. F. RICHARDS (Wolverhampton, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to a sentence of five years passed at the Middlesex Sessions by Sir R. Littler, upon a woman named Elizabeth Morrice, fifty-two years of age, for stealing 1d.; and whether he will say what action he proposes to take towards remitting some part of the punishment.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
I fear I cannot give an answer to this Question until I know whether there is to be an appeal, i.e., till ten days from conviction.
