HC Deb 22 January 1980 vol 977 c103W
Mr. Charles Irving

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in which prisons groups of the organisation Recidivists Anonymous operate; and what arrangements are made to encourage staff to become involved in their work.

Mr. Brittan

One group operates in Standford Hill prison. The concept of Recidivists Anonymous, as an organisation run by prisoners for their mutual help, limits the scope for involvement of staff in its activities.
