HC Deb 05 August 1924 vol 176 cc2779-80W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that James Kidman, of 3. Sandpit Lane, St. Albans, was convicted on 17th July last at St. Albans of trading under a title of a limited company, which was not registered, and fined £25 and £3 4s. costs, with the option of 28 days, and that the man was arrested eight days later at St. Albans and sent to prison without any opportunity of finding that sum; and whether steps will be taken to release the man promptly in order to give him an opportunity of finding the amount of the fine and costs?


Having made inquiry into the facts of this case, I have not found any sufficient ground for intervention on my part.
