HC Deb 22 October 1953 vol 518 cc287-8W
77. Mrs. White

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what decision has been reached following the visit of the Prison Commissioners to the former Polish hospital at Penley; and if he will give an assurance that, before any action is taken towards the use of the hospital as a prison, there will be the fullest consultation with all the local authorities concerned.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the camp at Llanerch Panna. The Prison Commissioners have this under consideration as a possible open prison, but no decision has yet been taken. If it is decided to proceed with the matter there will be consultation on the planning aspect with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government, who will give the fullest consideration to any representations made by the local authorities concerned and other interested parties.

Forward to
