§ 31. Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether there is any machinery in his Department for periodic review of the safety of specially dangerous prisoners.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
In addition to the special allocation which I have already announced, it is a continuous primary duty of prison staff to try to identify dangerous prisoners and secure their safe custody. The cases of prisoners placed on the escape list or made the subject of other special precautions are regularly reviewed.
§ Mr. Jenkins
I do not think so, because what I said was that those placed on the escape list were regularly reviewed; but Blake was taken off the escape list in 1961.
