Mr. Dubs

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will estimate the total cost to date in 1982 of keeping prisoners in police cells.

Mr. Mayhew

The use of police cells is almost confined to the Metropolitan police district, where the cost for their use in the first five months of 1982 was £320,700.
