HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 c627W
Captain PEAKE

asked the Home Secretary whether he will reconsider the case of Private Richard Wright, late 1st Battalion West Yorkshire Regiment, who is now in Maidstone Prison serving a life sentence?


It was decided at the time when the sentence of death was commuted to penal servitude for life, that the case should come forward for review in 1935. I have gone carefully into the case, but I do not feel that there are any grounds for altering that decision, nor can I anticipate what the result of the review will be.
