§ 72. Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that at the trial of Prisoner T. Brett, Police Constable Maslin stated in evidence that he had been alone in his van, whereas evidence is now available that he was accompanied by Police Constable Kent; and whether he will cause an inquiry to be made as to why Police Constable Maslin gave this false evidence at the trial of Brett.
§ Sir F. Soskice
I am not aware that Police Constable Maslin made any such statement in evidence at the trial.
