§ Mr. HARTSHORN
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that W. H. Richards went on hunger-strike in Ipswich Prison on the 26th March and, when examined by the doctor on 30th March, was discovered to be too weak to be forcibly fed; and whether he will say it this man is still in prison and what is his present state of health?
§ Mr. SHORTT
This prisoner refused food for two meals only and is now taking food. He is in good health except for having cut one of his fingers in breaking the glass of his cell.
