HC Deb 18 June 1940 vol 362 cc19-20
38. Mr. Thorne

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give any information in connection with a seaman wearing women's clothing, who was arrested and charged at Bow Street Police Court on 10th June?

Mr. Peake

I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that the person in question was convicted on 10th instant of importuning for an immoral purpose and was sentenced to six months' imprisonment. My right hon. Friend will consider the best method of dealing with this case before the expiry of the man's sentence.
