HC Deb 11 May 1971 vol 817 c94W
Mr. Simeons

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department under what circumstances a prisoner under escort could be taken from Liverpool Prison to Cannock so that there was no charge to public funds for the fare of the escort.

Mr. Carlisle

If a prisoner is produced in connection with civil proceedings, it is the usual practice for the costs to be met by him or on his behalf.
