HC Deb 02 May 1911 vol 25 c206

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any action has been taken with regard to Margaret Kerrigan, who was sentenced on 1st February, 1911, at Lancaster Assizes to two years' imprisonment for attempted suicide?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Churchill)

I have been able, I am glad to say, to make arrangements for this woman's being, with her own consent, removed to an inebriate reformatory, a more suitable place for her than prison; and I have advised His Majesty to grant a conditional pardon for this purpose.
