HC Deb 12 July 1956 vol 556 c46W
64. Mr. A. J. Irvine

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will investigate the circumstances in which Paul Monaghan, now detained in St. George's School, Fresh-field, Formby, Lancashire, recently ran away from the school at a time when his diseased hip made even a short period of exposure a source of serious danger to him; and whether he is satisfied that the boy is now receiving treatment adequate and appropriate to his condition and should not either be given leave or treated in hospital.

Major Lloyd-George

From inquiries I have made, I find there is no foundation for the suggestion that this boy is suffering from a diseased hip or from any other physical disability. He is quite fit, and is not in need of any special treatment
