HC Deb 05 August 1914 vol 65 c1979W

asked the Home Secretary whether, as Miss Grace Roe and Miss Hall have now been forcibly fed for ten weeks with serious consequence to their health, he will now grant these two prisoners immediate release?


The general health of these prisoners is reported to be satisfactory. I regret that I should not feel justified in advising the remission of their sentences unless they will undertake to refrain from criminal acts and incitements to crime in future, in which case I should be very glad to do so.
