HL Deb 06 April 1982 vol 429 c212WA
Lord Brockway

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they propose to remedy the conditions in Armley prison, Leeds, where, according to a Home Office report, two-thirds of the one-man cells are each occupied by three prisoners, one lavatory serves 60 prisoners, half the prisoners are without work, and the entire environment is degrading.

Lord Belstead

The action which is being taken on the report of HM Chief Inspector of Prisons on HM Prison Leeds is set out in the statement by my right honourable friend which was published with the report, a copy of which is in the Library.
