§ Mr. McENTEE
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the scheme for structural alterations in the officers' old quarters at Pentonville Prison is 1092W expected to last five years; and will he take steps to ensure that the large rubbish dump will as soon as possible be removed from in front of the windows of the officers' occupied quarters?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
It is the case that the reconstruction of the officers' quarters at Pentonville Prison will occupy some five years. I regret the inconvenience to the prison officers in the other quarters due to the storage of material arising from the demolition of the old quarters and their rebuilding. Owing to the limited space available it is not possible to avoid this inconvenience, but care will be taken to see that it is reduced to a minimum.
