HC Deb 10 May 1927 vol 206 c213W

asked the Home Secretary with reference to the case at the Central Criminal Court in which a victim of encephalitis lethargica was sent to prison with hard labour, whether the condemned person was under 16 years of age; and, if so, will he consider remitting the sentence and commit him to the institution at Winchmore Hill, under the control of the Ministry of Health, for the treatment of such cases?


This prisoner is 21 years of age, and the second part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
