HC Deb 03 June 1897 vol 50 c170
MR. JOSEPH A. PEASE (Northumberland, Tyneside)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he could state how many, if any, prisoners in the Military prisons of the United Kingdom or Colonies have received corporal punishment on more than one occasion during the last six years?


The Returns rendered do not distinguish the cases in which corporal punishment has been inflicted more than once on the same prisoner, but the information can be called for from the several prisons if the hon. Member desires it.
