HC Deb 22 July 1909 vol 8 c615
Mr. WALSH (for Mr. William Thorne)

asked the Secretary for War if he would give the length of service of the late Private Andrew Jamieson, who was found dead with his throat cut in a cell of the regimental prison at the Curragh; why the man received imprisonment; what was the sentence and the diet the man was fed upon prior to death; was the man confined in a cell measuring nine feet square; and will he state how many suicides have taken place in the Curragh within the past three weeks?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane)

Inquiries are already in progress in regard to this case. If the hon. Member will kindly put his question down again this day week I hope that I shall be able to give him the required information.


Will the right hon. Gentleman see that the full report is given to him of the evidence before the coroner's jury and of the observations made by the coroner in this case?
