HC Deb 21 March 1910 vol 15 c774

asked the right hon. Gentleman whether he had yet any further information as to the sentences passed upon the poachers at Belvoir?


I have made inquiry, and, having regard to all the circumstances of the case, including the violence which the prisoners used to the keepers and the long lists of previous convictions for various offences against both of them, I do not see my way to recommend any reduction of the sentences.
