HC Deb 14 April 1910 vol 16 c1404

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that Mr. John Fells, of Broadstairs, was recently fined £25 and costs for selling adulterated food; whether there were two previous convictions against him; whether he is a member of the local bench of magistrates; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any steps to have his name removed from the commission of the peace?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir William Robson)

I understand there is to be an appeal against the judgment referred to, and therefore I do not wish to say anything which might prejudice the case. With regard to the two alleged previous convictions, I am not yet fully informed. The matter will be brought to the notice of the Lord Chancellor.
