Leaflet entitled 'To Repeal the Cat and Mouse Act' calling for the repeal of the Prisoner's Temporary Discharge (for ill health) Act. Under this act, passed by the government in April 1913, hunger striking suffragettes were temporarily released from prison on the grounds of ill health, only to be rearrested once they had fully recovered their strength. The leaflet announces a meeting at Caxton Hall on Thursday, 24 July organised by the Repeal the Act Committee.
