§ Mr. Wilkinson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to improve the prison and Borstal after-care services; and whether he is aware of the important work that can be done through voluntary activity in this field.
§ Mr. Carlisle
Persons released from custody are supervised or assisted by probation officers, whose number is being steadily increased. I am well aware of the importance of voluntary activity in this field and I am anxious to give it further encouragement.
