asked the Home Secretary how many women are at present in prison for offences connected with the suffrage agitation, how many are being forcibly fed, how many are out of prison under the recent Act, and how many have escaped?


The number of women at present in prison for offences in connection with the suffrage agitation is ten; none of them are being forcibly fed. There are thirteen out of prison who have been released under the Prisoners (Temporary Discharge for Ill-health) Act; nine of these have failed to return to prison at the expiration of their period of temporary discharge.
