HC Deb 27 June 1935 vol 303 cc1284-5W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that at least six blocks of the officers' quarters at Barlinnie Prison, Glasgow, lack the most elementary sanitary conveniences; that two families in each block have to share the same lavatory and walk across a yard in inclement weather by night or day; that there are no bathrooms in these tenements; and what action, if any, he intends taking?


I am aware that the sanitary arrangements referred to in the question are not up to modern standards.
