Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what new action he intends to take to solve the problems of prisoners held in police cells.

Mrs. Rumbold

My right hon. Friend has described on a number of occasions action which has been taken recently to contain the numbers of prisoners in police cells both in the short and longer terms. He is continuing to monitor the position and will consider what further action might be taken if it proves necessary.
