HC Deb 27 February 1917 vol 90 cc1826-7

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a conscientious objector named Emanuel Ribers, now of 7b, East Ward, Lord Derby's War Hospital, Win-wick, Warrington, was arrested five weeks ago and handed over to the military; that he went on hunger strike and was seven days without food or drink at Bury Barracks; whether he has been forcibly fed at Warrington; and whether, in view of the danger involved in his treatment, he proposes to take any action in the matter?


This case is being investigated, and I should be glad if my hon. Friend would put down his question again next week, when I hope to be in a position to give him an answer.
