HC Deb 16 April 1964 vol 693 c83W
30. Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the bell used for awakening prisoners at 6.30 a.m. at Pentonville Prison has been replaced by a radio programme; by what authority these changes took place and what was the cost.

Miss Pike

My hon. Friend is under a misapprehension. A bell is still used for awakening prisoners.
