HC Deb 03 May 1983 vol 42 c32W
Mr. Peter Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many Loyalist, Republican, mixed and vacant wings there are at Her Majesty's prison, Maze.

Mr. John Patten

The classifications "Loyalist" and "Republican" do not admit of precise definition and prisoners are not grouped in this way. The information cannot therefore be given in the form requested. However, of the 32 wings at the prison, 15 are occupied by prisoners recorded as Roman Catholics, six by Protestants and seven by prisoners of various denominations both Catholic and Protestant. Four wings are vacant.
