§ Sir Ernest Graham-Little
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will inquire into the case, details of which have been submitted to him, of a young man who has been in prison for five years and who is regarded by independent civilian doctors as suffering from schizophrenia, but who has received no adequate medical examination by the prison medical officer and is receiving no medical treatment.
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The prisoner to whom my hon. Friend refers was sentenced to two years' imprisonment in February, 1944, though it is true that he has served other sentences of imprisonment and Borstal detention during the last five years. His case has been very carefully investigated by the prison medical authorities and by the consulting psychiatrist at Wormwood Scrubs Prison, but the conclusion reached was that psycho-therapeutic treatment could not be given to him in prison with any prospect of success.
