§ 25. Mr. LESLIE BOYCE
(for Sir PHILIP RICHARDSON) asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that an old settler of Tanganyika, Mr. C. M. Morrison, has sent a petition to this country, through the usual channels, praying for a free pardon and compensation in connection with a sentence for alleged culpable homicide in respect of which he claims that there was a miscarriage of justice; and whether this matter is being investigated?
§ Dr. SHIELS
The Governor has forwarded a new petition from Mr. Morrison, and this is being investigated.
