HC Deb 28 March 1899 vol 69 c635
MR. CARVELL WILLIAMS (Notts, Mansfield)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he can state to what religious denominations the prison chaplains of England and Wales belong; giving the total number connected with each denomination?


The chaplain and assistant chaplain of a prison must by statute (viz., the Act of 1865) be members of the Established Church. There are 61 chaplains and four assistant chaplains.
