HC Deb 10 March 1924 vol 170 c1954W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that six dwelling-houses, completed 10 years ago for officials at Wakefield Prison, are still untenanted; and whether, having regard to the applications now being received by the Wakefield Corporation to provide prison officials with housing accommodation, he will arrange to house the prison staff in the untenanted dwellings?


The work on these houses, which are within the old prison wall, was necessarily discontinued early in the War when the prison ceased to be used for ordinary prisoners. The prison has recently been re-opened, and steps are now being taken to complete the houses for the occupation of prison officers.
