HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c15
24. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Attorney-General when Mr. D. J. Corcoran will be released from Winchester Gaol.

The Attorney-General

It is for the court to decide when this prisoner can be released, but I understand that he is making an application which will be heard next Thursday, 23rd November.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Can my right hon. and learned Friend say why this Question was transferred to him from the Home Secretary and will he answer future Questions on this case, if they become necessary?

The Attorney-General

I think that is a matter for the Table, but it concerns the administration of His 'Majesty's courts of justice and I answer on behalf of my noble Friend the Lord Chancellor in regard to such matters.
