§ 65. Mr. Iremonger
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he has taken on the petition, 77W presented in early December by the prisoners in Her Majesty's Prison, Springhill, of which he has had details from the hon. Member for Ilford, North, petitioning for leave to defend a court action on Monday 5th February.
§ Mr. Carlisle
Directions were given for a prisoner from Her Majesty's Prison, Springhill, to be produced at Bow County Court to defend a civil action on 5th February, and he was transfereed to Wormwood Scrubs accordingly so as to be nearer the court. The date of the action has, however, now been adjourned generally and the prisoner's attendance at court was not therefore necessary.
