MR. ROWLEY HILL (for Sir EDWARD WATKIN)
asked the Secretary of 971 State for the Home Department, Whether the dietary now in force for Military prisoners in Millbank Prison has been brought under his consideration; and, whether it is the fact, that the dietary and discipline of Military prisoners at Millbank has within the last two years been modified by the governor, on the advice of the surgeon, in above a thousand cases?
MR. ASSHETON CROSS
, in reply, said, that the scale of dietary in force for military prisoners in the prison referred to by the hon. Member was brought under his consideration in June last, and that, in conjunction with the Directors of Prisons, he had ordered it to be altered. It was therefore different now in some material points from the dietary in force at the time referred to by the hon. Member. The matter was still under consideration, and he would see what further modifications were necessary.
