HC Deb 08 March 1945 vol 408 c2207
21. Commander Locker-Lampson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department at what stage in the case of Mrs. Jones, condemned to death for murder, this woman first had legal advice.

Mr. H. Morrison

I am informed that on her first appearance before the Feltham justices on 14th October, 1944, Mrs. Jones was granted a legal aid certificate entitling her to free legal aid, and that on the resumed hearing before the justices on 3rd November she was represented by counsel who was instructed by her solicitors.
