§ Mr. Stodart
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has completed his consideration of the Prison (Scotland) Rules, 1952; and whether he proposes to amend Rule 37 and thus permit remission of sentence for good conduct to apply to 363W prisoners serving sentences for contempt of court.
§ Mr. Ross
Yes. Amendments to the Prison (Scotland) Rules, 1952 and to the Young Offenders (Scotland) Rules, 1965, which will allow remission of sentence for good conduct to apply to prisoners and young offenders serving determinate sentences of more than 30 days for contempt of court, will be laid in draft shortly.
