HC Deb 26 July 1951 vol 491 cc626-7
33. Mr. Wakefield

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what complaints he has received about the quality of the water supplied to His Majesty's Prison at Sudbury; and what remedial action he proposes to take.

Mr. Ede

When the camp at Sudbury Park was taken over as a prison the source of the water supply was the River Dove, and dissatisfaction was expressed by the staff over the taste of the water. The trouble has now been removed by connecting the prison's water supply to the mains and disconnecting the old source of supply.

Mr. Wakefield

Would the right hon. Gentleman make inquiries whether the staff and inmates of the prison are now satisfied?

Mr. Ede

I have been making inquiries, and I am assured that the staff are now satisfied.
