HC Deb 16 February 1911 vol 21 cc1237-8

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether letters from the Prison Commissioners to convicts released upon licence are posted in envelopes bearing upon the outside thereof the words "Convict Supervision Office"; and, if so, whether, in view of the hardship inflicted thereby upon ex-convicts who are endeavouring to lead honest lives, he will give instructions that the practice shall be discontinued?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Churchill)

I am informed that communications sent to convicts on licence from the Convict Supervision Office are already sent in plain envelopes. There is no need for issuing fresh instructions on the subject.
