§ 32. Mr. BYRNE
asked the Home Secretary whether he has received any Report as to the sanitary conditions of Frongoch Camp; if a 6 inch hot pipe is working full pressure day and night in one of the dormitories where 200 Irish prisoners sleep; if the ventilation of this dormitory is insufficient; and if, to safeguard the health of the Irish prisoners, he will send them to more healthy surroundings or order their immediate release?
The sanitary conditions at Frongoch are reported to me to be excellent, as I informed the hon. Member for North Westmeath on the 6th July. There is a warm pipe in one of the dormitories, but the beds are well removed from it, and this dormitory is neither overheated nor ill-ventilated I may add that this camp was previously used for German prisoners, and was then visited on several occasions by representatives of the American Embassy, who not only found no ground for criticism but considered it an ideal camp and one of the best in the United Kingdom.
