§ MR. HERBERT GLADSTONE (Leeds, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet received Mr. Merrick's Report on the Working of Prisoners' Aid Societies; and, whether this Report will be presented to Parliament?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY
I have not yet received Mr. Merrick's Report, but I understand that it will be ready before the end of this month. 495 Until I have seen it, I cannot, of course, say whether I shall be able to lay it on the Table of the House or not.
