HC Deb 26 March 1912 vol 36 c406W

asked the Attorney-General whether it was because of the opposition of the Crown that Mr. Tom Mann was refused bail at the Salford Police Court on Thursday last; whether there was any doubt that the prisoner would appear to take his trial; and whether there are precedents for refusing bail in cases where the charge is founded on seditious words or writings?


No; the Crown offered no opposition to the application for bail of Mr. Tom Mann, which wan refused by the Court. The charge is not founded on seditious words or writings, but is a charge of felony. The matter is one for the determination of the Court.
