HC Deb 23 April 1964 vol 693 cc204-5W
Mr. Compton Carr

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the report of the Working Party on the Prison Medical Service will be available; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Brooke

The report is being published today, and copies are available to hon. Members in the Vote Office. It provides a valuable analysis of the medical requirements of the prison service, together with recommendations for meeting them. I accept all these recommendations in principle, subject to consultation with the interests concerned.
