HC Deb 07 May 1889 vol 335 cc1360-1
MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department, what is the rule in England in regard to the visits to persons in prison in default of giving bail?


They are permitted to receive a visit and also to write one letter in each week, and the Visiting Committee may, by permission in any special case, for special reasons, prolong the periods of the visits allowed to such prisoners, or accord additional visits or letters to such reasonable extent as they may deem advisable.
