HC Deb 10 August 1920 vol 133 c219
32. Mr. C. WHITE

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the desirability of the establishment of separate places for the confinement of remand prisoners?


I could not make myself responsible for the very large expenditure that would be necessary in order to establish and maintain special buildings for the detention of prisoners on remand and to provide them with the necessary staff; but I would point out that magistrates are empowered to commit prisoners on remand to other places of security than prison.
