Mr. Ryman

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what changes he proposes to make in the administration of the prison rules as a result of the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights on 21st February 1975 holding that a Home Office decision to refuse a prisoner access to his solicitor was in breach of two articles of the European Convention on Human Rights, solitary confinement in the special control unit at Wakefield Prison.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I am giving urgent consideration to the implications of the court's judgment and shall announce my conclusions as soon as possible.
