HC Deb 09 July 1942 vol 381 c964W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that James Gerrard MacMahon was sentenced at Sheffield recently to 12 months' imprisonment for obtaining 4s. 6d. under false pretences; and whether he will consider remitting some, or all, of the sentence?

Mr. H. Morrison

I understand that the defendant has appealed to quarter sessions against the decision of the court of summary jurisdiction. I cannot intervene in a case which is still pending before the courts.
