§ Mr. William Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proposals he has for relieving the pressure on Borstal accommodation in England and Wales.
§ Miss Bacon

Friend proposes also shortly to convert Stoke Heath prison in Shropshire for use as a boys' borstal. This will provide accommodation for up to 300 boys.
