HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 cc1499-500W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware of the complaints being made by the female prison staffs as to the low temperature in the buildings and the general want of fires; and whether he will make inquiries into the matter and give instructions that economy is not to be carried to the extent of imposing personal discomfort on the women?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers given in this House on the same subject by my predecessor in office, as Secretary for Scotland, on the 24th October and 14th November of this year.
