HC Deb 11 May 1896 vol 40 c1012
MR. E. H. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S. W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the number of the prisons in which accommodation has been provided for juvenile offenders sentenced to one month and upwards, with a view to the administration of the rule which he has just issued; whether those prisons will be reserved for this class of offenders exclusively; and whether he will be good enough either to state the names of the prisons or to indicate the area of the districts to each of which one of these prisons is assigned.


A scheme for giving effect to the Rule is at present under consideration. When the Rule is in force, as it will not be until it has lain for 40 days on the Tables of both Houses of Parliament, I shall be prepared to give the hon. Member the information he asks for.
