HC Deb 04 July 1916 vol 83 cc1359-60
31. Mr. BYRNE

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether he will arrange with the Home Office to allow visiting at Frongoch camp on Sundays; and if he will extend the time allowed to visitors to one hour?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. I regret that, owing to exigencies of staff, it is impossible to give such facilities for visits as the hon. Member suggests.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the train journey to Frongoch from London is about six hours, and Irish Members visiting the prisoners are only allowed a quarter of an hour to interview the prisoners at the prisons?


I am aware of that.
