§ Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received from(a) the chief inspector of prisons and (b) the Prison Officers Association concerning the introduction of minimum care standards in prisons; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Waddington
I have received no representations from Her Majesty's chief inspector of prisons about the introduction of a code of minimum standards in prisons. The Prison Officers Association has made such representations from time to time, most recently at a meeting on 11 April 1990.
