HC Deb 25 February 1986 vol 92 c483W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what will be his policy regarding permission given to inmates of open prisons to obtain, through the relevant governors, lists of telephone numbers of doctors or solicitors when payphones are introduced at the end of April.

Mr. Mellor

Inmates wanting the telephone numbers of doctors will be required to apply to the governor, who may obtain the information for them unless he suspects an improper motive.
