§ 81. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Home Secretary why the usual ration of milk has been withdrawn from the Countess Markievicz, Irish political convict at Aylesbury; whether it will be restored to her; and, seeing that she is still solitary while the male convicts in for the same cause are allowed daily intercourse with each other, whether he will allow her a visit at least once a week?
§ Sir G. CAVE
The milk ration (i.e., the allowance of milk given with cocoa and tea) has not been withdrawn, but reduced for all convicts and prisoners. The prisoner in question is in good health and does not require any special allowance of milk. I have already stated that she will be allowed to receive, in addition to the usual monthly visits, a special visit from her sister once a month.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will she be allowed milk if sent in by her friends, and will her sister be allowed to visit her once a week?
