24. Mr. V. Adams
asked the Home Secretary what is the policy of His Majesty's Government with regard to the death penalty?
§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Sir John Simon)
I cannot add anything to the reply which I gave to a similar question by my hon. Friend on 21st May.
Is the right hon. Gentleman open to conviction on the matter? If I could show him that this particular 1050 deterrent was not necessary, would he replace it by another?
