HC Deb 19 March 1925 vol 181 c2492W

asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been drawn to the conviction of Percy Gibson to three years' penal servitude at Newcastle Assizes on the 27th February; and, seeing that the man was charged with a misdemeanour and a felony, and was found not guilty of the felony and guilty of the misdemeanour, will he take steps for the mitigation of the sentence?
