HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 cc551-2
59. Mr. HUNT

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the case of Mrs. Brierley, the wife of a soldier who was sentenced to a month's imprisonment in London for collecting money on behalf of a firm for providing Belgian soldiers with warm clothing; and, as no evidence was produced to dispute her statement and as there was no evidence, as asserted by Detective Dyer, that she was addicted to drink, will he make inquiries into the case with a view to the remission of the sentence?


I have received no application from or on behalf of the person mentioned. Her sentence expired on Saturday last and she was released in the ordinary course.
