§ MR. CRILLY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what is the extent of accommodation for prisoners in the Military Prison at Brixton; how many prisoners are at present confined there; how these prisoners are classified; and whether it is in contemplation to abandon the use of the Brixton Prison for Military purposes; and, if so, to what purposes it is proposed to devote the building?
§ *MR. E. STANHOPE
The Military Prison at Brixton contains 493 cells, of which 69 were occupied on the 21st inst. Like other prisoners under sentences of imprisonment, the men are on a system of progressive stages. The question of the continuance of the prison has not yet arisen; but in view of the great and very satisfactory reduction in the number of military prisoners, the point will, I think, have soon to be considered.
