HC Deb 04 July 1985 vol 82 cc227-8W
16. Mr. Tom Cox

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement on conditions in Wandsworth prison.

Mr. Mellor

Wandsworth shares the shortcomings, especially in sanitary provision, of Victorian prisons that have not been refurbished. It is, however, less overcrowded than most such prisons; its certified normal accommodation is 1,258 and on 29 June its population was 1,554.
