§ 68. Mr. STEPHEN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he can state the number of persons who are still detained in the criminal lunatic department of Perth Prison who have been certified as sane for one, two, and three or more years, respectively?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Mr. William Adamson)
I am obtaining the information desired and will communicate it to my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. STEPHEN
Will the right hon. Gentleman see that the provisions of the 1857 Act are not used to give imprisonment for life to these people?
