HC Deb 14 June 1894 vol 25 c1089

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he received a Petition last March from the officers of convict prisons; and whether he will state when they may expect an answer thereto?


I have received a number of such Petitions. They relate for the most part, as the Petitioners are aware, to matters which wore carefully considered as lately as 1890 by a Departmental Committee. The questions raised have received, and will continue to receive, my attention; but I cannot undertake at present to give any more definite answer.
