asked the Home Secretary whether he has investigated the case of Victor Kenneth Walker, sentenced on 2nd December, 1941, to 12 months' imprisonment for an offence on conscientious grounds, who, died some weeks after the end of his sentence; and what treatment was given him by the prison authorities after receipt of his brother's letter expressing alarm, on 20th April, 1942, and the first diagnosis of heart trouble, on 18th May, 1942?

Investigations into this case are still proceeding, and I will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as they have been completed.
