§ 13. Mr. RITSON
asked the Home Secretary, for the latest convenient date, the average cost per head per week of persons in His Majesty's prisons in England and Wales and in the County of Durham, respectively?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
There are no separate figures for Durham Prison, but I am sending the hon. Member a statement of the average cost per head in the several classes of prisons in England and Wales for the year ended 31st March last.
§ Mr. RITSON
Can the right hon. Gentleman inform us why he cannot give a separate figure for Durham? Surely he ought to know it.
