HC Deb 14 January 1998 vol 304 c227W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Prime Minister if he will transfer financial provision for education and training in prisons to the Department for Education and Employment. [22585]

The Prime Minister

The Prison Service will continue to review how it can most effectively develop its core educational curriculum to meet the needs of all prisoners, particularly juveniles.
