HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 cc1355-6
3. Mr. Chetwynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that the work of the D.P.A.S. at Liverpool Prison is being hampered by suggestions that an unofficial society, from which official approval was withdrawn in 1943, is again to be recognised as qualified to do this work; and whether he has any statement to make.

Mr. Ede

Any such suggestions are entirely. without foundation. I have no intention of reconsidering the decision made in 1943, and I deplore the harm done to the work of helping discharged prisoners by the activities of this unrecognised body.
