§ 20. Mr. Tom Clarke
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he next proposes to meet the Association of Scottish Prison Governors for discussions on conditions in Scottish prisons.
§ Mr. Lang
My right hon. and learned Friend has received no request for such a meeting. I met the trade union side of the Scottish prison service, which included the Society of Civil and Public servants (Governors' Committee), on 23 January to discuss a number of matters, including overcrowding, affecting the Scottish prison service.
