HC Deb 06 March 1912 vol 35 c385

asked whether the disorderly conduct of the prisoners remanded on a police court summons for window smashing on Friday last has necessitated the suspension of the prison rules relating to the admission of visitors at Holloway Prison by the Home Office?


Yes, Sir. The rights of prisoners to visits are subject to the maintenance of order and discipline in the prison; and, in consequence of the disorderly conduct of a number of remand prisoners on Sunday morning, all visits, except those of their legal advisers, had to be suspended. Those remand prisoners who have not been guilty of serious disorder in prison are now receiving the ordinary visits.
