HC Deb 01 December 1947 vol 445 c33W
Mr. Renton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many youths undergoing sentence in Borstal Institutions have this year been prematurely released, provisionally or otherwise, owing to the lack of accommodation in Borstal institutions.

Mr. Ede

None. Since the war the sole consideration upon which discharge has been determined is the fitness of the individual for discharge.
