HC Deb 04 July 1924 vol 175 c1659W

asked the Home Secretary the average cost of maintenance of prisoners in July, 1914, and in July, 1924, in convict prisons, in local prisons, and in all prisons, respectively; and the value of labour deducted in arriving at the net cost, in each of these classes?


Information on these points is given in the Annual Reports of the Prison Commissioners, for example, in Appendix 10 of the Report for 1922–1923. It would not be possible to give the figures for any particular month without a vast amount of research and clerical labour.
