HC Deb 08 December 1927 vol 211 c1579W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether in the case of Charlotte Leitch, sentenced at Dundee on 25th November to two months' imprisonment without the option of a fine on a summary complaint charging her with perjury, consideration can be given to the case of the prisoner, who is medically certified as in ill-health and still maintains her innocence of the charge?


I have carefully considered the case to which the hon. Member refers, and I regret that after inquiry I find no sufficient ground to justify me in advising any interference with the sentence. The prisoner's health is being kept under observation.
