HC Deb 01 June 1916 vol 82 cc2877-8
60. Mr. NUGENT

asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government to deport a number of young ladies at present in Mountjoy Prison on suspicion, and against whom no charge has been preferred; and, if so, whether he will consider the undesirability of such a proposal, involving the transfer of these young ladies to a strange district in which they would be separated from their homes and friends and without any means of support?


I answered this question yesterday.


Have the friends of these prisoners at Mountjoy been refused permission to wait in a waiting-room, and have those friends had to wait outside in all weathers before they could get in?


The hon. Member must really give notice of that question. It is impossible that the Minister can be in a position to answer it.
