§ 39. Mr. CROOKS
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the case of Mary Elizabeth Orchard, a girl of seventeen years of age, who was employed as a postwoman at Milford Haven, and who was lately sentenced to three months' imprisonment for stealing £3,000 while in course of transmission; and whether, in view of her tender age and the temptation to which she was exposed, he will order her release under the First Offenders Act?
§ Sir G. CAVE
My attention had not previously been called to this case, and I am making inquiry about it.
