§ 38. Mr. Callaghan
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that a pay claim was submitted by the Prison Officers' Association to the Prison Commission on 13th November, 1961; why six months have elapsed without a reply having been given by the Prison Commission; and how soon the Prison Officers' Association can expect an answer.
§ Mr. Fletcher-Cooke
This claim, which has been the subject of discussion with the Prison Officers' Association since its original submission, has raised a number of issues requiring careful consideration. I hope that it will be possible to send the Association a reply quite soon.
