HC Deb 02 July 1958 vol 590 c103W
Mr. C. Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that a letter dated 12th June, 1958, addressed to the hon. Member for Perry Barr was not censored at Parkhurst until 18th June, and posted on 20th June: and why this delay took place.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The only letter to the hon. Member from a prisoner at Parkhurst which I have been able to trace within the relevant period was not handed in for censorship until 18th June. It was censored on 19th June and posted on the following day.
