§ Mr. Meacher
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the drugs administered to prisoners in penal establishments in 1981, and the level of dose given to each prisoner who received such treatment in each establishment.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The information requested is not collected centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. Information on the number of doses of medicines dispensed in prison department establishments in 1981 was published in table 7 of appendix 6 to the report on the work of the prison department 1981 (Cmnd. 8543).
