§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Prison Commissioners for Scotland have adopted, or propose to adopt, such of the new rules for local and convict prisons in England as are improvements on those in Scotland; and, if so, what changes will be made.
§ MR. A. GRAHAM MURRAY
A fair comparison cannot be drawn between the rules for prisons in Scotland and those for prisons in England, as the former have been revised and brought up to date so recently as 1896. But some changes in the Scottish prison rules and dietaries are at present under the consideration of the Prison Commissioners.
