HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 c1133

(by Private Notice): I beg to ask the Home Secretary if he is aware that one of the Irish prisoners at Frongoch has become insane; if he will state whether this man has been removed to an asylum or if he is still detained at Frongoch Camp; if he is aware that this man's condition has been the result of his cruel treatment whilst interned; if he will say whether he has yet considered the advisability of removing from his post the commandant in charge; and if he will say when he will grant a discussion on the treatment of the prisoners?


One man was removed from Frongoch to the North Wales Counties Asylum at Denbigh on 3rd August, where he now is. The suggestion that he was cruelly treated at Frongoch is without foundation.


As there have been attempts to disprove all the charges I have made, I will raise the matter to-night and prove them all.
