HC Deb 15 July 1992 vol 211 c779W
Mr. Bernie Grant

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps are taken to ensure that prisoners who make complaints to their Members of Parliament are not intimidated by prison staff or prison authorities.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

No staff should intimidate prisoners for this or any other reason. Any prisoners who consider they are being intimidated can use the prison service requests and complaints system to approach the governor, area manager, chairman of the board of visitors, or a range of individuals and bodies outside the prison service.
