Mr. WEST RUSSELL
asked the Home Secretary how many general reports on youths on remand at Wormwood Scrubs boys' prison were submitted during the past year at the request of magistrates; and what percentage of all the cases on remand at that prison does this figure represent?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
During the 12 months ended 31st May, 1933, 218 general reports were submitted at the request of magistrates; this represents 8.06 per cent. of the 2,705 young prisoners who were received on remand into Wormwood Scrubs Prison during that period?
