Marks And Spencer And The Law

EDM number 382 in 1989-90, proposed by John P Smith on 25/01/1990.

That this House deplores the statement made by a senior Marks and Spencer legal executive, as reported in the press, that a not guilty verdict does not necessarily mean someone is innocent, said in relation to Kevin Strongman from the Vale of Glamorgan; and notes that after being found not guilty in the Crown Court of shop-lifting, Mr Strongman has in effect been fined by Marks and Spencer, who refuse to return the goods he purchased or the ú20.12 he paid for them.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
