HC Deb 24 February 1977 vol 926 c642W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will explain the special features of Dover, Wellingborough and Stoke Heath borstals that led, respectively, to 45, 31 and 21 confinements to room in 1975, compared with no confinements in the Manchester and Portland borstals.

Mr. John

We do not consider that any conclusions can reasonably be drawn about these five establishment by looking at these particular statistics.
