HC Deb 26 July 1897 vol 51 cc1085-6
MR. J. M. PAULTON (Durham, Bishop Auckland)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can state whether the experimental changes instituted last May in the treatment of juvenile prisoners on remand or awaiting their trial at Holloway have proved satisfactory; and, if so, whether it is intended to extend their operation to other prisons?


I am glad to say that I received last week a most satisfactory report of the working of this experiment at Holloway, and I have in consequence approved the proposal of the Prison Commissioners that it shall be at once extended to all prisons in England and Wales. [Cheers.]
