37. Mr. VYVYAN ADAMS
asked the Home Secretary whether the Prison Reform Society is concerned with the defence of the prisoners charged with riotous conduct in Dartmoor gaol?
§ Sir H. SAMUEL
Some of these convicts are being defended under the Poor Prisoners Defence Act; others are represented by solicitors and counsel of their own choosing but I do not know how their 660 expenses are borne. I would like to take 1,041 the opportunity of saying, as I believe some misunderstanding has arisen, that 1,042 the Howard League for Penal Reform has of course no connection with the 4,241 society referred to in the question.
