HC Deb 24 March 1914 vol 60 cc198-9
71. Mr. DU PRE

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the latest Religious Census of Prisons (Prison Statistics Creeds) for England, Wales, and Scotland cannot be obtained by the public from the Government printers; whether the total number of Wesleyan, Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Congregationalist, Lutheran, Unitarian, and other Christian bodies who were inmates of His Majesty's prisons in England and Wales in 1913 amount to 1,464; whether the number of Roman Catholic prisoners as ascertained by personal inquiry amount to 3,522; and whether the number of Jewish prisoners, out of a total of 18,225, numbered 169 persons?


The figures were published in the OFFICIAL REPORT of 11th July, 1913, as an answer to a question put by the hon. Member for the Truro Division of Cornwall. I will send the hon. Member a copy of the reply.
