§ Mr. G. NICHOLSON
asked the Home Secretary the number of applications received by the Department from prison officers in the London prisons for transfers to provincial prisons during the year ending 31st December, 1932, and the alleged reasons for these applications?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR:
There were 19 such applications during this period. Five were on grounds of health, five to be nearer to relatives, three to take up work in Borstal institutions, two to take up 2157W work in convict prisons, two on account of failure to secure suitable accommodation in London, and two from officers who had failed to qualify for promotion and desired a change of prison.
