HC Deb 20 July 1961 vol 644 c159W
62. Mr. A. Brown

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he anticipates removing the borstal girls presently confined within the precincts of Durham, Cardiff, Exeter and Manchester prisons to more suitable accommodation.

Mr. R. A. Butler

In March, 1962, the completion of the new borstal at Bulwood, Essex, will enable three of these four borstals to be closed if the number of inmates remains as at present. Exeter will probably have to be retained until a further new borstal is provided; a site for it is being sought.
