Mr. MONTAGUE BARLOW
asked whether the Home Secretary will now further consider the case of Charles D. Cooper, who was sent to the Heaton Mersey Industrial School on the 12th June, 1911, with a view to allowing a remission of some portion of the period for which the lad was sent to the reformatory?
§ Mr. McKENNA
For the reasons which. I gave to the hon. Member in a letter in December last, I am not prepared to interfere with the discretion of the managers in this case. The boy is in need of discipline and training, and it will probably not be deemed desirable to release him on license for some time to come.
Mr. M. BARLOW
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider whether arrangements can be made for boys of this kind so that they may not come in contact with boys of criminal or vicious habits?
