HC Deb 21 November 1968 vol 773 c313W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why his Department name prisons with the prefix Her Majesty's; and whether he will now designate them as named prisons with or without location as a means of identification.

Mr. Elystan Morgan

Because they are Crown establishments, staffed by members of a Government service. I see no reason to drop the prefix from their official designations.
