HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 c289W
39. Mr. W. T. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what special provisions are made for the safe custody of persons serving very long terms of imprisonment.

Miss Bacon

Each case is considered on its merits. Special provisions for safe custody are not necessary for all persons serving very long sentences; they are limited to those considered to be a special escape risk.
