§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prisoners on rule 43 worked in their cells on the most recent convenient date; and what types of work they were employed in.
§ Mr. Mellor
The information requested is not available centrally. Efforts are made to provide prisoners on rule 43 with work where local circumstances, including the availability of suitable work, permit. In the case of prisoners on rule 43 for their own protection this may include work in association.
