HC Deb 31 March 1960 vol 620 cc159-60W
58. Miss Bacon

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware of the unsatisfactory state of affairs arising out of the fact that Borstal girls are accommodated in the same building as male prisoners; and what plans he has for the removal of these girls.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the Question by the hon. Member for Durham (Mr. Grey), on 25th February. I have made clear before that I dislike borstal girls having to be temporarily in local prisons but until the new security borstal for girls can be completed we must continue this expedient.
