HC Deb 05 March 1889 vol 333 c966
MR. COGHILL (Newcastle-under-Lyme)

I wish to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether, when during the last five years officers and members of the Salvation Army have been sentenced in England to terms of imprisonment, they have been subjected to the ordinary prison discipline and to the ordinary prison rules; and, whether, during their imprisonment, they have had to clean out their cells and to wear prison dress in common with other prisoners, and to take exercise with other prisoners.


The answer to both paragraphs of the hon. Member's Question is in the affirmative.

MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)

I should like to ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he does not consider that a disgraceful fact?


Order, order.
