HC Deb 09 February 1967 vol 740 c350W
49. Mr. George Craddock

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider instituting a one-year training course for prison officers in conjunction with universities and training colleges.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Members of the prison service, at various levels, already attend courses at universities and other educational establishments. I am not at present convinced that it would be feasible or appropriate to introduce a general practice on the lines suggested by my hon. Friend.
