HC Deb 05 July 1937 vol 326 c43W
Mr. Lawson

asked the Home Secretary whether he is now prepared to reconsider the sentences on the Harworth people in connection with the recent charges?

Sir S. Hoare

I understand that the persons in question have applied to the Court of Criminal Appeal for leave to appeal against their sentences. Pending the determination of these applications the question of any consideration of the sentences by me does not arise.
