§ 19. Sir W. HOWELL DAVIES
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that E. Rudman, who is serving his fifth sentence as a conscientious objector in Wormwood Scrubs Prison, and who was recently forcibly fed twenty-eight times in Ipswich Prison, is now in a very bad state of health, having had influenza, pneumonia and bronchitis; and whether he will authorise this man's release on health grounds?
§ Mr. SHORTT
This prisoner has recovered from his attack of influenza and pneumonia, but his general health is poor and the medical officer who has charge of him is at present considering his case. If his report justifies that course, Rudman will be released.
