HC Deb 01 December 1937 vol 329 cc2090-1W
Mr. Grenfell

asked the Minister of Health whether he has inquired into the case of a lady, Miss H. E. H., who was arrested on 20th March last in Hyde Park and detained in Long Grove asylum for two months, in circumstances described in a statement submitted to him by the hon. Member for Gower; and has he any statement to make?

Sir K. Wood

I am communicating with the hon. Member in regard to the several questions raised in the statement which he has sent me; but, in the meantime, I think it desirable to say that he has been misinformed on certain points and that there is conclusive evidence that this lady was of unsound mind and in urgent need of care and treatment.
