HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 c401W
Mr. Iremonger

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now state the conclusions he has reached from his inquiry into the problem of mentally-ill patients remanded in custody.

Mr. Taverne:

My right hon. Friend has approved fresh instructions covering the use of special clothing to reduce the risk of suicide, clearer guidance on the need for continuous supervision of some prisoners and the latest medical advice on the detection of proneness to suicide.
