Minister to reconsider WWI pardon (UK)
The Ministry of Defence said he would do so after Private Harry Farr's daughter launched a High Court appeal against an earlier refusal.
Pte Farr, then 25, of Kensington, west London, was shot at dawn in 1916 after refusing to return to the front line.
His family argue he was suffering from shell shock.
In court, the family's solicitor John Dickinson, said Mr Reid was also considering meeting the family.
