§ 110. Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what policy is pursued at Holloway Prison with regard to food parcels sent in for prisoners; and in how many cases such food has been destroyed during the past six months.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Meals and reasonable quantities of chocolates, sweets and fresh fruit may be sent to untried prisoners; and girls in the borstal wing are allowed a parcel at Christmas and for birthdays. Convicted prisoners are not permitted to receive food parcels. Food received in breach of the rules which cannot be put with a prisoner's private property is, when practicable, returned to the sender. The information requested in the second half of the Question is not available.
