HC Deb 08 June 1944 vol 400 cc1495-6
29. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department by how many women's organisations he has been approached with a view to equalising the good conduct remission of prison sentences as between men and women.

Mr. H. Morrison

I think my hon. and gallant Friend must be under some misapprehension. All prisoners whether men or women, can earn by good conduct and industry remission not exceeding one-third of their sentences. I have not received any representations on this subject.
