§ 4. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he will give the House the latest information regarding the health and treatment of the political prisoners now in Irish prisons?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Birrell)
Neither the health nor the treatment of any prisoners now in custody on conviction of offences under the Defence of the Realm Acts present any special features which would be of interest to the House.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how Mr. Macdermott, a delicate man, is faring under his heavy sentence?
