Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, how many borstal entrants there were in Scotland during 1958; and how many of these were given a psychiatric interview on entry.

Mr. Maclay

408 males and 22 females were admitted to borstal training in Scotland in 1958. About 90 per cent. of the former and all the latter were interviewed, shortly after reception, by a member of the psychiatric unit attached to the Scottish borstal service.
