§ Mr. ELLIS (Nottinghamshire, Rushcliffe)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what number of women have gone to prison during 1908 in consequence of disorderly conduct in Downing Street, Parliament Square, or other places and buildings thereabouts; how many of such persons have been discharged on promise of good behaviour; how many have served their sentences; and how many are now in gaol.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) The total number of such persons received into prison in 1908 is seventy-two. Of these sixteen have been released on entering into recognisance to be of good behaviour, and three on payment of their fines, five have served their sentences, and forty-eight are now in prison.
