HC Deb 28 March 1974 vol 871 c165W
28. Mr. Wellbeioved

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the last edition of Rules and Standing Orders for the Government of Prisons was published; and when a new edition including all amendments made since the last edition will be published.

Dr. Summerskill

Prison rules are statutory instruments made under the Prisons Act 1952 and are published accordingly. The revision of standing orders, which are internal instructions for the guidance of governors, is a continuing process.
