HC Deb 07 December 1939 vol 355 cc806-7
27. Mr. W. Roberts

asked the Home Secretary whether he will inquire into the case of Mr. J. M. Kammelard, who was prosecuted for having used insulting, words whereby a breach of the peace was likely to be caused and was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, with a view to a remission of the sentence?

Sir J. Anderson

This man has sent a petition to me and certain inquiries are being made. The matter will be dealt with as quickly as possible, but I am not at the moment in a position to make any statement.

Mr. Roberts

In view of the fact that this particular Fascist was sentenced for making a statement that he considered the First Lord of the Admiralty should be despatched as soon as possible, and that that view is not greatly dissimilar from the view, I believe, held by the Prime Minister until recently—[Interruption].
