Orders of the Day — Army Offences (Sentences).

Part of the debate – in the House of Commons on 9th July 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Robertson:

May I draw the right hon. Gentleman's attention to the fact that he has not dealt at all with the severity of the sentence passed by the court? He has dealt at great length with the good character of the officer and with the fact of the court being influenced by the effect of its decision on his future in civilian life. The corporal, although of another rank, also has to find employment in civil life and also has a stain against him in the future.
