HC Deb 21 November 1917 vol 99 cc1171-2
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?


My attention had not previously been called to this case, and I am making inquiry about it.
