§ 44. Mr. GOLDSTONE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been drawn to the case of Jessie Klose, the English wife 2273 of a German subject, who was recently committed for twenty-one days in the second division for breaking a window at the Albany Street police station; whether he is aware that the woman committed the act simply to draw attention to her case; and whether, in view of the fact that this woman is English in all but name and has lost her means of support, anything can be done to alleviate her sufferings and have the position of women similarly placed given more sympathetic consideration?
A similar question was asked yesterday. Has the right hon. Gentleman anything to add to what he said then?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir J. Simon)
I am making inquiry into this case and am considering how it should be dealt with, but however hard an individual case may be, it cannot justify window breaking as a means of calling attention to it.
