HC Deb 05 May 1960 vol 622 c93W
Mr. Abse

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many remand homes for boys awaiting Borstal training are intended to be created in Wales; and when it is anticipated they will be ready for use.

Mr. R. A. Butler

It is not yet possible so say when remand centres will be available to cover the whole of Wales. When the new Borstal Reception Centre at Ashford is completed early next year the waiting period before boys are transferred to a reception centre should be greatly reduced.
