§ 40. Mr. MANDER
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that a person formerly included by his Department on the list of approved hangmen is now travelling the country fair-grounds with a show demonstrating an actual hanging; and whether he will take steps to prevent such practices?
§ Sir HERBERT SAMUEL
I have seen a report in the Press, but I regret that there is no means, as far as I am aware, of preventing such representations.
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Does the right hon. Gentleman not think that this exhibition may have the effect of preventing serious crime? Could he not offer this performer to Chicago after his tour here?
