Former MP, Farnworth
asked the Home Secretary whether he can state the reason why James Evans, whose home is at 51, Southern Street, off Worsley Road, Farnworth, Lancashire, has not been allowed to return home, seeing that he was sentenced to three years at an approved school on the 27th June, 1934, and the three years have now expired; why this boy was only at the school for 20 months, and for the last 17 months...
Am I to understand that the authorities have the right to keep this boy for another three years?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that if this boy is kept away in this district as an agricultural labourer he will attain manhood on the very lowest wage in the country, whereas if he were allowed to come back before he is 18 years of age there would be the possibility of his getting a much more remunerative occupation in his own locality?
