HC Deb 16 July 1965 vol 716 c125W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what proportion of Borstal inmates were previously at approved schools in 1950 and in the most recent convenient year, respectively.

Miss Bacon

35 per cent, of the persons received into borstals during 1964 had previously been in approved schools. I regret that comparable information for 1950 is not now available.
