§ Mr. WATT
asked the Lord Advocate whether he could now see his way to recommend the liberation of Robert Simpson, Glasgow, who was convicted in 1907 of conspiracy to defraud certain newspapers, in view of the facts that the conviction rested largely on handwriting, and that further doubt had since the conviction been placed on the opinion of the handwriting expert?
§ The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. Ure)
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave regarding this case to the hon. Member for Bridgeton last week.
