HC Deb 24 July 1923 vol 167 cc228-9
75. Mr. T. THOMSON

asked the Home Secretary whether, in the interests of the children and young persons who have to pass prison gates, he is prepared to introduce legislation to amend the Capital Punishment Amendment Act, 1868, so that it will no longer be necessary to exhibit for 24 hours on the occasion of each execution notification of these occurrences on the gates of the prison where they take place?


My right hon. Friend has considered the subject, but finds no occasion for proposing any amendment of the existing law.
