asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been drawn to the wrongful arrest and imprisonment of Mr. William Henry Fisher, of Plaistow, London, E., and whether it is proposed to make any grant to him on that account; and will he give the House particulars?
The attention of my right hon. Friend was called to this case by my hon. Friend the Member for Plaistow (Mr. Thorne). My right hon. Friend has made inquiry and is satisfied that this is not a case in which he would be justified in entertaining any application for payment, by way of compensation from public funds.
