HC Deb 16 July 1931 vol 255 c749
20. Mr. DAY

asked the Home Secretary whether Ronald True, the ex-airman who was sentenced to be detained during His Majesty's pleasure for the murder of Gertrude Yates in 1922, is still detained at Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum; and whether this prisoner is subject to the ordinary rules and conditions as regards purchase of food and receiving visitors?


True was certified insane while under sentence of death and was removed to Broadmoor. The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.


Can my right hon. Friend say whether any inquiries at present are going on there with regard to True's conduct in Broadmoor?


I could not have answered the two closing parts of the question without inquiries having been made. They have been made.
