HC Deb 18 December 1912 vol 45 cc1515-6W

asked the Home Secretary whether a few weeks ago he received a request from a gentleman carrying on business in Mincing Lane to inquire into the circumstances of his conviction in a Police Court; whether he refused an inquiry; and, if so, whether he will now, acting on the precedent created by the case of Engine-driver Knox, grant an inquiry?


I have received a representation which appears to be the one to which the hon. Baronet refers, but the facts of the case, as put before me, were not such as to justify action of the kind which I felt it my duty to take in the case of Engine-driver Knox.
