HC Deb 11 March 1987 vol 112 c242W
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.
