HC Deb 22 November 1911 vol 31 cc1342-3W

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been drawn to the sentence on George W. Meynell at York Assizes on 14th November, who was sent for six months to hard labour and ordered to receive twelve lashes with the cat at the beginning of the sentence and twelve more after three months' imprisonmnt; and whether he will follow several recent precedents and remit the second instalment of flogging?


The prisoner is entitled under the Criminal Appeal Act to bring his case before the Court of Criminal Appeal for a revision of his sentence, and in the meantime I can say nothing with regard to the possibility of action on my part.
