§ 73. Mr. GEORGE HARVEY
asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been called to the sentence passed at the Sussex Assizes upon two police constables of the A division on the 12th instant for thoughtlessly accepting one or two trivial, gratuities at the last Goodwood race 2013 meeting; and if he intends to give this sentence his consideration with a view to remission?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
It does not appear to be a matter for me to deal with, but no doubt the Minister will have had the point in mind.
§ Captain HACKING
Yes, Sir. I have seen reports of the trial, but there is nothing before my right hon. Friend that renders it necessary for him to consider the question of advising the exercise of the Prerogative. The prisoners are entitled to apply to the Court of Criminal Appeal for leave to appeal against their sentences, if they think fit to do so.
