HC Deb 18 July 1924 vol 176 c758W

asked the Home Secretary the number of vacancies at present in the prison service, England, and the number of recruits enrolled for the last period of 12 months for which figures are available?


The number of vacancies is, not related to a fixed establishment, but depends largely on the size of the prison population, which shows a tendency to fall. During the year 1922 44 men and 15 women were appointed to the subordinate staff. No appointments were made in 1923.
