HC Deb 30 May 1907 vol 175 c76
MR. RENDALL (Gloucestershire, Thornbury)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether prisoners are weighed on entering prison with no clothes on and are weighed when leaving prison fully dressed; and, if this is the case, will he, in the interest of accurate statistics, see that in future prisoners are weighed on entering and leaving prison similarly attired.


Prisoners are weighed both on reception and on discharge in the ordinary prison dress without cap or shoes.
