HC Deb 30 July 1930 vol 242 c532W

asked the Home Secretary whether there has been any alteration in the method of transporting prisoners from Darlington to Durham Goal during the past six months; and, if so, what the present practice is?


No, Sir: I am not aware of any alteration dining the past six months: the practice for many years has been for Darlington prisoners to be taken in a police van to Darlington Station, thence by rail to Durham, and by police van from Durham Station to the prison.
