HC Deb 01 December 1931 vol 260 cc907-8
2. Mr. KIRKWOOD (for Mr. McGOVERN)

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that untried prisoners are compelled to sleep on the floor of cells at Glasgow central police office; and if he will consider whether it is possible for some better provision to be made for them?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I am informed that each of the cells in the Glasgow central police station is equipped with a bed. Chairs, tables, mattresses and rugs are kept in all police stations, and these are available in normal cases for the use of untried prisoners.
