§ Mr. SCRYMGEOUR
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?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
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.
