Says No Discrimination Between Political and Other Prisoners

Download PDF for this date

There is no reason for discrimination between political and other prisoners in Palestine since no such discrimination exists in England, declared Dr. Drummond Shiels, under-secretary for the Colonies in the House of Commons. He denied that Hannah Millstein, youthful Jewish Communist, had died as a result of a hunger-strike. According to Dr. Shiels she had not taken part in the hunger strike and died from heart disease three months after she was released from prison.
