HC Deb 30 November 1979 vol 974 c811W
Mr. Soley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the board of visitors did not investigate the incident at Wormwood Scrubs prison on 31 August until 2 September.

Mr. Whitelaw

In my reply to a question by the hon. Member for Ormskirk (Mr. Kilroy-Silk) on 30 October I stated that I had asked the regional director of the South-East region of the prison department to produce for me a comprehensive report on the incident in D wing of Wormwood Scrubs prison on 31 August—[Vol. 972, c. 462]. The report will cover the action taken by the board.
