§ 104. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what immediate plans he has for tackling overcrowding in Pentonville Prison, where some 600 men are housed three to a cell.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The only remedy for the overcrowding of local prisons such as Pentonville is the building of new prisons and other penal establishments. This is proceeding as a matter of great urgency.
