§ Mr. Thurnham
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to reply to the letter from the Prison Governors Association dated 15 June; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Waddington
We have no record of a letter of 15 June from the Prison Governors Association although I understand that a copy of the letter sent by the vice-chairman of the association on 4 June about the reorganisation of the prison service was included in the association's bulletin to its members of 15 June. I replied to the letter on 18 June.
