HC Deb 18 January 1993 vol 217 c10W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what policy his Department adopts in respect of an inmate being moved from one prison establishment to another to ensure that there is no delay in the transfer of the moneys belonging to that inmate.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

This is not achieved in all cases, and we continue to look at ways, including computerisation of prisoners' money and earnings, to minimise delays.
