§ 59. Mr. RAMSAY MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to statements regarding the treatment of Mrs. Haynes in Camberwell House, alleging that whilst there certain procedure necessary for her classification as a lunatic was gone through in an improper manner; and whether he will inquire into the circumstances of the case?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
I have seen statements in the Press respecting this case. I had previously received representations to the same effect, and I had referred them to the Commissioners in Lunacy, who reported that they had made careful inquiry into the complaints, and were satisfied that there were no good grounds for them.
