§ Mr. Corbett
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the procedure by which convicted prisoners may apply for permission to visit close relatives in other penal institutions in England. 
§ Mr. George Howarth
Inter-prison visits may, on application, be allowed between prisoners who are close relatives when both parties are inmates at separate establishments, subject to the requirements of security and the availability of transport and accommodation. The procedures for convicted prisoners to apply for permission to have such visits are set out in Prison Rules 33 and 34, Standing Order 5A and Circular Instruction 11/1991, copies of which are held in the Library.
