Special attention is paid to the health of expectant mothers in prison, and I am satisfied that they receive all necessary care and treatment both before and after their confinement. The purposes for which it has been decided to appoint a, House-mistress at Holloway Prison do not include such special care as a prisoner may need because she is an expectant mother. Such special care is provided by the medical and nursing staff, which includes three women doctors and a number of trained nurses and qualified midwives.
I think so, and I am exceedingly anxious that, as far as it is practicable, they should have as good treatment as they would get from the local authority if they were not in prison.
