HC Deb 24 June 1965 vol 714 c241W
43. Mr. Albert Evans

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what help is given by the Prison Commissioners in rehousing the family on the death of a prison officer in service.

Miss Bacon

When a prison officer dies in service, one of my Department's staff welfare officers gets in touch with the widow at once to see if she requires any help. If she asks for assistance in finding accommodation, he will approach the appropriate local authority on her behalf.
