HC Deb 27 July 1933 vol 280 c2789W

asked the Home Secretary if he will make a statement on the present position of the Northern Federation of Discharged Prisoners' Aid Societies; what has been the cost to date; and how much of this cost has been borne by the Treasury?


The Northern Federation of Discharged Prisoners' Aid Societies was formed in December, 1931, with the object of helping to co-ordinate the activities of those societies, particularly in dealing with prisoners discharged at a distance from the area in which they live or from which they were committed. The Treasury approved a grant from the Prisons Vote which has hitherto covered the administrative expenses involved. For the year ended 31st March last these amounted to £486.
