As described on the website of the U.K. Parliament, “The government
sought to deal with the problem of hunger striking suffragettes with the
1913 Prisoners (Temporary Discharge for Ill-Health) Act, commonly known
as the Cat and Mouse Act.” The summary notes: “This Act allowed for the
early release of prisoners who were so weakened by hunger striking that
they were at risk of death. They were to be recalled to prison once their
health was recovered, where the process would begin again.”
