HC Deb 17 October 1975 vol 897 cc829-30W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish in the Official Report the names of all those serving on boards of visitors in prisons and borstals in England and Wales.

Dr. Summerskill

No. My right hon. Friend is not persuaded that it would serve any useful purpose to publish in theOfficial Report the names of nearly 1,400 members of the public who give their services in this way, but if my hon. Friend has any particular point to put to him about the membership of boards generally or about a particular board he will be glad to consider it.
