HC Deb 08 July 1918 vol 108 cc49-50W

asked the Home Secretary if he will have a thorough inquiry made into the state of health of A. R. Morgan, a conscientious objector in Wormwood Scrubs Prison, who is reported to be in hospital and in a weak state of health, suffering from double hernia and chest trouble, which threatens consumption; and, in view of the man's state of health and his unfitness for medical service, will he order his release?


The case is receiving careful medical attention, but at present there is not sufficient ground for interference with the sentence on the ground of illness. The man is not in hospital.
