§ 61. Mr. LEONARD
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will take steps to provide water-taps for the supply of fresh water to prisoners working in the quarry and fields adjacent to Barlinnie prison and so discontinue the present practice of water-pails?
§ Mr. SKELTON
The present practice is that each working party takes with it supplies of fresh water in covered water cans. This arrangement would seem to be suitable and satisfactory.
§ Mr. LEONARD
Is the Under-Secretary aware that the receptacles referred to are invariably encrusted with rust and 545 otherwise undesirable, and, owing to the time the water lies, it is not always fresh, and will he favourably consider the installation of a water tap at least in the quarry. Will he look into the matter?
