§ 44. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been drawn to the sentence of three months' imprisonment with hard labour passed on 2nd March on four members of the Greenock unemployed committee by the Sheriff's Court at Greenock; and whether, in view of the severity of the sentence, having regard to the evidence adduced against the accused, he is prepared to consider the modification of the sentence?
§ The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. Munro)
As the hon. and gallant Member is aware, I am inquiring into this case. My decision will be announced without avoidable delay.
