§ 85. Mr. COOPER
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the case of two youths, Stephen McDonald, aged 16, and Albert Staff, aged 18, who were recently sentenced at Birmingham Sessions to three years in a Borstal institution and six months' hard labour, respectively, for carrying off two farthings from a warehouse into which they had broken; and whether he will consider the desirability of reducing these sentences?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I am making inquiries and would suggest that my hon. Friend should repeat his question on Thursday.
