§ MR. LUTTRELL (Devonshire, Tavistock)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the insufficient and bad housing accommodation of the prison warders at Princetown, he will take steps to erect new buildings at a greater rate of speed than at present.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) By the end of the current year 192 officers will be in quarters out of 222 entitled to quarters, and, though some of these quarters are not the most modern type, their reconstruction is not a matter of urgency. Money will, however, be taken in the Estimates for next year for the provision of additional quarters, and the work will be proceeded with with as much speed as the conditions permit.
