§ 64. Mr. BYRNE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the Irish prisoners at Lewes are still forced to wear convict garb; if he will issue instructions for them to wear their own civilian clothes and allow them an improved dietary scale; and if he will say whether the time has arrived for their release?
§ The SECRETARY Of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir G. Cave)
The prisoners wear prison dress as required by Statutory Rule 23. They nee on diet E, the highest given in prison. It is a very liberal diet, and no complaint has been received from any of them either as to its quantity or quality. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
