HC Deb 21 May 1936 vol 312 c1354

asked the Home Secretary on what grounds Warder J. Jelly, of Wandsworth Prison, was refused permission to give a blood transfusion in a serious case at St. James's Hospital, Wandsworth; whether he is aware that Warder Jelly afterwards made arrangements to give the blood transfusion in his own time; and whether he can state the reasons why the warder in question has suffered a reduction in rank?


This officer has asked for an interview with the Prison Commissioners, which will be granted in due course. I should therefore prefer not to make any statement on the matter today, and perhaps the hon. Member would be good enough to repeat his question in a week's time.
