HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 cc304-5W
63. Squadron-Leader Fleming

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received a report of the case of Mary Bamber, matron of a Manchester day nursery, who was recently convicted of stealing food intended for the children at the said nursery on or about 15th December, 1947; and whether any further action is to be taken in the matter.

Mr. Ede

I am aware of the facts of this case. But the question whether any further action or further criminal proceedings should be taken was a matter for the decision of those responsible for enforcing the law and I can find no ground for any action on my part.
