HC Deb 21 December 1961 vol 651 cc1563-4
47. Mr. Scott-Hopkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether one of the seven new detention centres will be definitely identified with Cornwall.

Mr. Fletcher-Cooke

A senior detention centre for the South and West is being built at Haslar, Hampshire. A site for a junior detention centre is under consideration.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

Will my hon. and learned Friend bear in mind the needs of Cornwall and Devon in this matter, and will he try to ensure that the deten- tion centre which is under consideration is placed in the West Country?

Mr. Fletcher-Cooke

Yes, Sir.
