HC Deb 04 June 1964 vol 695 c189W
51. Miss Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people are in prison for debt by reason of the fact that they had not complied with a court order; and what were the average length of stay in prison and the total amount of money owed in the years 1962 and 1963.

Miss Pike

The number of non-criminal prisoners received in 1962 is stated in the table on page 15 of the Statistical Tables to the Prison Commissioners' Annual Report for that year, but I regret that the more detailed information asked for by my hon. Friend is not available.
