§ 9. Major ARCHER-SHEE
asked the Home Secretary whether in the case of Mr. T. Herbert, of 134, Farringdon Street, E.C., who was bound over on his own recognisances to keep the peace for six months on 3rd December, 1912, at Bow Street Police Court, he is aware that Mr. Herbert was given two days to find bail but was rearrested within twenty-seven hours; and if Mr. Herbert will receive some recognition of their mistake owing to the injury done to him by the illegal arrest?
§ Mr. ELLIS GRIFFITH
I must refer the hon. Member to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave to a similar question asked by him on the 27th March last. The arrest was made by order of the magistrate, and if Mr. Herbert wishes to question his jurisdiction, he has his legal remedy. The Secretary of State has no authority to interfere.
§ Major ARCHER-SHEE
As this man was given forty-eight hours to find bail and was arrested within twenty-seven hours is he not entitled to some sort of recognition from the State? He is a very respectable man.
