§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will order an urgent inquiry into the circumstances in which a prisoner was hanged in his cell by fellow prisoners at Risley Remand Centre.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
No. The circumstances surrounding the murder of this young man have already been thoroughly investigated by the police, and fully ventilated in court. When this death was first reported I also ordered an immediate examination of the relevant procedures at Risley Remand Centre. I am arranging for a transcript of the proceedings to be studied in case this should reveal any points requiring further examination.
