HC Deb 02 February 1961 vol 633 c153W
90. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that three Cardiff youths, sentenced for Borstal training, have already been in Swansea gaol for five weeks; and what steps he intends to take to remove these juveniles from this prison.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Yes. There has recently been a delay in moving boys to borstal reception centres, mainly because of a sharp increase in committals, but these boys and others sentenced in December will be moved to the reception centre by the end of this week.
