HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 cc1416-7W
Mr. Poole

asked the Home Secretary whether he will inquire into the case of Marie Riley, who was kept in custody by the Solihull police from 15th October to 17th October, and whose application for bail was refused?

Sir J. Anderson

I have made inquiries and find that this woman was arrested at 10.45 p.m. on Saturday, 14th October, on a charge of assaulting a constable and was brought before the court in the morning of Monday, 16th October. On her appearance on 16th October, the justices ordered her to be remanded in custody, but upon a subsequent application, made by her solicitor on 18th October, bail was granted.
