HC Deb 04 June 1964 vol 695 c185W
8. Mr. Leavey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement showing the current average weekly earnings of men serving prison sentences, giving the aggregate of such earnings last year.

In a recent week the average was 4s. 10d. The aggregate last year was about £300,000. These figures exclude the earnings of prisoners who go out to work for normal wages on the hostel scheme.
