HC Deb 19 May 1943 vol 389 cc1113-4W
Mr. McGovern

asked the Attorney-General whether his attention has been drawn to the coroner's inquiry held at Chatham, on the death of Rifleman William Clarence Clayton and the verdict of manslaughter against Regimental Sergeant-Major J. Michael Culliney and Quartermaster-Sergeant Leslie Dickson Salter; whether the police opposed the granting of bail to these men; and on what charge it is proposed to proceed against them?

The Attorney-General

Bail was not opposed by the police. The warrant officers will be charged with manslaughter.
