HC Deb 08 February 1911 vol 21 cc410-1W

asked whether there is any, and what, difference between the treatment of criminals undergoing a sentence of criminal detention and of those undergoing a sentence of penal servitude; and what are the respective regulations referring to these two classes of criminals?


There are not, and cannot be for some time yet, any convicts undergoing Preventive Detention, as this always follows a sentence of three years' penal servitude. Rules for this form of detention will be laid before the House in a few days.
