HC Deb 24 February 1926 vol 192 cc487-8

I beg to present to the House a Petition which has been signed by about 300,000 citizens of Great Britain, including 100 Members of this honourable House and men and women of all political persuasions, drawing the attention of the House to the miners and the members of the Communist party who are held in prison, and praying this House to ask His Majesty to be good enough to use his Prerogative, and to release them from prison. The same Petition has been further supported by a few dozen telegrams this morning.
