HC Deb 23 November 1967 vol 754 c406W
74. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action is being taken to extend to other prisons the industrial training given in Gloucester Prison with equipment donated by a local industrial firm.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Similar arrangements with private firms already apply to about 1,700 inmates of prisons, borstals and detention centres in England and Wales and I hope to extend them. I am grateful to all the firms who are helping to provide useful work and training for inmates.
