§ 31. Mr. Fernyhough
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prisoners in His Majesty's prisons have taken their own lives in the years 1946, 1947, 1948 and to date in 1949.
§ Mr. Fernyhough
Can my right hon. Friend give any explanation for the increase in the figures this year? Is it due to harsher treatment, or are the prisoners left completely without hope?
