HC Deb 07 March 1934 vol 286 c1812
33. Mr. JOEL

asked the Home Secretary whether relatives and friends are allowed to visit inmates at Broadmoor Asylum on Sundays; and, if not, whether he will take steps to see that such permission is granted?


Visits to patients at Broadmoor are allowed on any week-day from 10 to 12 and from 2 to 4, but not on Sundays, Good Friday or Christmas Day. I recognise that in some cases relatives and friends may find difficulty in arranging to visit on a week-day, but I understand that there are practical difficulties in the way of any alteration in the existing arrangements.
