HC Deb 27 April 1981 vol 3 c359W
Mr. Dewar

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many children under 2 years of age were admitted to Scottish penal establishments as the result of the conviction, remand in custody or refusal of bail to a mother in each of the last five years.

Mr. Rifkind

During the last five years, a mother and a child under 2 years of age have been admitted together to a Scottish penal establishment on only one occasion. This was on 8 April 1981, when the mother was remanded in custody at Cornton Vale institution and requested that her daughter should accompany her.
