Poster 'The cat and mouse act passed by liberal government'. The Prisoner's Temporary Discharge for III - Health Act of 1913 meant that imprisoned Suffragettes on hunger - strike could be released because of ill - health but be re-imprisoned once they had recovered. This 'letting them go; then catching them again' earned the measure the popular title of 'The Cat and Mouse Act'. Part of the collection of objects relating to the Suffragette Movement, given by the Suffragette Fellowship, 1950. This poster first appeared in May 1914.
