§ MR. PICKERSGILL
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether with a view to enable hon. Members to appreciate the operation of the draft prison rules, he will lay upon the Table all Standing Orders and other general regulations respecting the treatment of prisoners?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
I am afraid I do not see my way to complying with the suggestion of the hon. Member. The Standing Orders are very voluminous, regulating as they do the details of administration in every branch of the Department, and most of them are of a purely Departmental character. Any that are of more general interest, such as the rules respecting juveniles awaiting trial, are always made public in the Reports of the Commissioners or in other ways.
