§ 4. Mr. Collins
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider the remission of the sentence of three years' Borstal training passed on Peter Green, a conscientious objector, at Chelmsford Quarter Sessions, in view of Mr. Green's previous character and the special circumstances.
§ Mr. Collins
Is my right hon. Friend aware that this case has caused considerable public concern, and would he say whether there is any precedent for sending a young man of otherwise first-class character to Borstal for an alleged offence of this kind?
§ Mr. McGovern
Outside the trial of the case, is my right hon. Friend satisfied that the magistrate who tried this man did not show a rather vicious trend of mind?
