HC Deb 10 June 1941 vol 372 c51W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Home Secretary whether any rules have been issued to prison and camp governors making it clear that the detention of British subjects who are not convicted is not of a punitive nature; and, if so, whether he is satisfied that such regulations are being adhered to in all such places of detention, both before and after the case of the detainee has been dealt with by the advisory committee?

Mr. H. Morrison

The answer to both parts of the Question is in the affirmative. I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on 1st May to a Question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Cleveland (Commander Bower).
