§ 24. Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Home Secretary whether he can make any statement concerning the recent disturbances among the convicts at Camp Hill Prison, Isle of Wight?
As the result of the recent judgment in the Court of Criminal Appeal in R. v. Norman, a large number of men undergoing sentences of preventive detention at Camp Hill desired to appeal. Pending the consideration of their petitions, they showed some symptoms of unrest, and special precautions were taken to deal with any 2225 outbreak. The men have since been informed that the Secretary of State is bringing their cases before the Court of Criminal Appeal, and the latest report from the governor is that the prison is quiet and normal. There was no disturbance.
I could not say that now, but if the hon. Gentleman will put a question down, I will give him the information.
