HC Deb 18 February 1971 vol 811 c528W
58. Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to repeal Section 34 of the Prisons Act, 1877.

Mr. Maudling

These provisions are now in Section 38 of the Prisons Act, 1952. The possible repeal of this Section will be considered in consultation with the local authority associations when a suitable opportunity arises for amending legislation.
