HC Deb 26 July 1979 vol 971 c386W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list for each prison or penal institution under his control the number of psychiatrists in full and part-time employment for the current year and for each of the preceding five years or for the most convenient period of time.

Mr. Brittan

The information is not available in the form requested and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

I will write to the hon. Member giving the information that is available.
