HC Deb 17 February 1982 vol 18 c129W
Mr. Soley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether there is any restriction upon the expenditure of wages earned in prison by inmates serving custodial sentences and liable for deportation or removal or who are the subject of deportation orders.

Mr. Mayhew

No. The earnings of those sentenced prisoners who are awaiting deportation or removal from the United Kingdom may be retained by them for their own use and are not liable to be taken in aid of the expenses of their deportation or removal from the United Kingdom.
