HC Deb 13 August 1838 vol 44 c1172
Sir E. Wilmot

said, that the bill for the improvement of discipline in prisons having been thrown out in another place, owing, as it seemed, to some misconception respecting separate confinement and solitary confinement, he wished to ask the noble Lord whether they might look for another bill on the subject early next Session?

Lord J. Russell

said, it certainly was his intention to bring in a bill on the subject next Session, and notwithstanding that the late bill had been lost elsewhere, be should unquestionably persevere in the endeavour to amend the system of prisons in England and Wales.

Subject dropped.
