HC Deb 29 March 1927 vol 204 c1080W
Colonel DAY

asked the Home Secretary what charges are made at His Majesty's Prison, Brixton, for hair-cuts and shaves to prisoners on remand?


Remand prisoners and prisoners awaiting trial at Brixton Prison, may, on application, be shaved, if they do not shave themselves, or may have their hair cut free of charge, by another prisoner. Those who prefer to be shaved by an outside barber are charged 3d. for a shave. 6d. is charged for haircutting. When the barber attends specially before breakfast he charges 1s. for a shave and 1s. for hair-cutting.
