§ 5. Mr. K. Thompson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has completed his inquiries into allegations of ill-treatment of prisoners in Liverpool Prison; and if he will make a statement.
§ Major Lloyd-George
I have had inquiry made into the allegation but I have not yet been able to complete my study of the Report.
§ Mr. Thompson
Is my right hon. and gallant Friend aware that the prison officers will welcome any inquiry, public 1600 or otherwise, which will show these allegations to be completely unfounded?
§ Mrs. Braddock
Is the Home Secretary also aware that the prisoners who have been knocked about will be very anxious to have an inquiry, which will prove that they are not telling untruths?
