HC Deb 29 November 1928 vol 223 c622W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any further statement to make on the case of Mr. A. J. Brewer, second officer of the Clan Line ss. "Clan Lamont," who, after arrest on the charge of theft of £1 on 17th December last, was imprisoned for nine months while awaiting trial in Portuguese West Africa, and who was then condemned to 360 days' imprisonment and £18 fine or another 90 days' imprisonment plus costs; and whether he will lay the correspondence in connection with this case upon the Table of the House?


I have nothing to add to the statement made yesterday by my right hon. Friend in reply to the hon. Member for Central Southwark (Mr. Day) and to the hon. Member himself.
