HC Deb 03 May 1887 vol 314 cc691-2

asked the Secretary of State for War, What steps have been taken to remedy the defects pointed out in the Report on the Discipline and Management of the Military Prisons (1885)?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

The suggestions of the Inspector General of Prisons, to which my hon. Friend refers, have been under the consideration of a Committee, whose Report has only been received about 10 days ago. I have myself only seen it to-day; and, therefore, have not yet been able to decide how far its recommendations can be carried out.
