HC Deb 06 February 1986 vol 91 cc226-7W
Mr. Soley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has any plans to bring Her Majesty's prison department establishments under the public health regulations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

No. The primary responsibility for supervising hygiene standards in prison service establishments rests with the medical officers based at each establishment, who may call on the advice of environmental health officers as required. We see no need to alter these arrangements.
