§ 6. Sir WALTER de FRECE
asked the Home Secretary whether, seeing that on 30th May a memorial gateway erected by convict labour is to be dedicated to the memory of American prisoners of war who died in Dartmoor Prison during the years 1813 to 1815, he will consider the appropriateness of recognising the event in some way by a cessation from work or otherwise among the convicts now in this gaol?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I am afraid it is not practicable to give to convicts anything in the nature of a holiday. Cessation of work would merely mean that the convicts would be locked in their cells.
