§ MR. PICKERSGILL
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department upon what classes of labour at Dartmoor are prisoners convicted of felony and prisoners convicted of misdemeanour respectively employed; are prisoners of the latter class employed out of doors, and away from the prison; and is there anything, and if so what, in their dress or otherwise, to distinguish their appearance from that of felons?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY
There is only one prisoner convicted of misdemeanour at Dartmoor. He is undergoing his period of separate confinement, and on completing it will be sent to Parkhurst. Misdemeanants are never employed out of doors at Dartmoor. There is nothing to distinguish misdemeanants in appearance from felons.
