HC Deb 22 April 1926 vol 194 cc1391-2
17. Mr. R. S. HUDSON (for Captain T. J. O'CONNOR)

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the principle that a man is to be presumed innocent until he is proved guilty, he can state the reasons for the Regulations recently issued by the Prison Commissioners regarding the treatment of prisoners on remand, whereby such prisoners are prohibited to smoke, to use alcoholic liquor, or to receive visitors?


The Regulations to which I presume my hon. and gallant Friend refers relate only to prisoners while actually at Courts of Trial, when smoking and drinking are forbidden, but visits within proper limits are allowed.
