25. Captain ARTHUR EVANS
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that in honour of the King's Jubilee His Majesty's Government in the Dominion of Canada has decided to remit one month from the sentence of every prisoner serving six months or over; and if he will sympathetically consider a similar proposal for this country?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave on the 7th February to the hon. Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies).
§ 32. Mr. MARTIN
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will consider arranging, with Mr. Speaker's consent, that Mr. Speaker's coach should be placed on view in a convenient place so that the public may have an opportunity of inspecting it at some time during the period of the Jubilee celebrations?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)
I have considered my hon. Friend's suggestion and have made certain inquiries, but, owing to the size of the coach, it has unfortunately not been possible so far to find a convenient place which would be suitable for its exhibition.
§ Mr. MARTIN
Is the right hon. Gentleman still considering other places? Is he still pursuing inquiries?
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Is it not time that this antiquated vehicle was replaced by a really respectable motor car?
§ Mr. THORNE
Would there be any difficulty about placing the coach outside Mr. Speaker's house, so that everybody could have a look at it?
