Mr. Ted Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will institute an inquiry into the case of Mr. Derrick Jackson, who was convicted at Darlington and sentenced to 12 months' imprisonment, in the light of the particulars which have been sent to him by the hon. Member for Darlington.
§ Sir F. Soskice
I understand that on appeal fines totalling £300 have been 283W substituted for the sentence of imprisonment. I am not aware of any ground for inquiry into the case.
