HC Deb 19 April 1937 vol 322 c1439W
Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many, if any, condemned houses in Perth prison village are still occupied by the officers and their families?

Mr. Elliot

No houses at Perth Prison occupied by prison officers and their families have been condemned. Fourteen of the houses occupied, are unsatisfactory and do not lend themselves to reconstruction. These houses will be dispensed with when the new Criminal Lunatic Asylum at Carstairs has been erected.
