§ 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.
