HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 c379W

asked the Home Secretary if he will have a special inquiry made into the state of health of S. Hodgson, a conscientious objector in Wands worth Prison, and particularly in regard to his mental condition, in view of the fact that his letters from prison bear unmistakable evidence of mental unbalance as a result of his prison confinement?


I have made inquiry. The medical officer reports that no indication of insanity can be found in this prisoner, and that he has expressed his regret at having given a mistaken impression of his mental condition in a letter which he wrote home. I am having the case watched.
