§ 31. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Home Secretary if records are kept by his Department of the religious beliefs of persons imprisoned in His Majesty's gaols?
§ Mr. CLYNES
Every prisoner on his admission to prison is asked to declare his religious persuasion, and such information as prisoners give is on record at the individual prisons. A return from prisons was collected recently and I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
§ Mr. KIRKWOOD
I thought from the number of questions as regard Russia that Russia was the only country where they put people in prison in respect of religion.
