§ 62. Mr. NAYLOR
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the sentence of 14 days' hard labour passed upon two seamen found riding on the buffers of the Euston to Liverpool express on 1st August without having paid their fare; and whether, seeing that their committal was due to their inability to pay a fine of 20s., he will take steps to have the sentence reduced and the men discharged forthwith?
No facts have been brought to my notice that would justify any interference on the part of my right hon. Friend, but if my hon. Friend will inform me of the place of conviction I will make inquiries.
