HC Deb 24 March 1925 vol 182 c270W
Lieut.-Colonel HORLICK

asked the Home Secretary what was the total cost to the taxpayer of sending lads from Borstal institutions into camp in the years 1923 and 1924; what funds have been voluntarily subscribed towards the expense of these camps; and what is the estimated cost for the present year?


All the expenses were met from funds subscribed voluntarily. The amounts so subscribed were £406 1s. 6d. in 1923 and £469 3s. in 1924. The Prison Commissioners tell me they hope that a sum equal to that of 1924 will be subscribed in 1925, so that the same number of Borstallers may be sent to camp this year.
