HC Deb 22 February 1978 vol 944 c646W
Mr. Goodlad

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he has taken following the conclusions of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration to his report on Case No. C249/77.

Mr. John

The Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration found that no maladministration has occurred in this case; and no action with respect to the individual complainant was called for Owing to a variety of factors, including the need for restraint in public expenditure and the continuing high level of the prison population, there is no early prospect of any general improvement in conditions in local prisons, to which the Parliamentary Commissioner referred in the conclusion of his report.
