HC Deb 23 December 1976 vol 923 cc285-6W
Mr. Brotherton

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) if those prisoners who are to be released on parole on 23rd December will be issued with return travel warrants;

(2) what steps will be taken to reclaim the value of unused return travel warrants issued to prisoners on parole at Christmas.

Mr. Concannon

The majority of prisoners granted temporary home leave make their own transport arrangements. If required, however, a travel warrant is issued to cover the journey to and from the prisoner's destination. I am not aware of any problem with regard to unused travel warrants.
