HC Deb 28 February 1911 vol 22 cc212-3

asked whether, having regard to the fact that a young Jew named Louis Ross, who was convicted at the Dublin Commission, in August last, for robbery from a Dublin post office and sentenced to five years' penal servitude, was released in January last and subsequently granted a free pardon, and having regard to the sufferings and indignities inflicted upon him and the precedent set by the Beck and other cases, it is the intention of the Government to make provision to compensate this person?


It is a fact that Louis Ross, who was found guilty by a jury of the robbery of a post office, and. sentenced to five years' penal servitude in August last, was released in January and the remainder of his sentence remitted. He was not granted a free pardon, and there is no intention of giving him compensation.
