HC Deb 01 March 2001 vol 363 c740W
Mr. Linton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the number of street robberies which(a) involved and (b) did not involve the theft of a mobile phone for every quarter since 1999 in Battersea; and if he will make a statement. [151150]

Mr. Charles Clarke

The information in the table has been provided by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, and represents the details for Wandsworth borough of which area Battersea forms a part.

Mr. Boateng

Prison Service guidance on visits does not define the term "family member", although it lists family members who should be regarded as "close relatives", whose visits to a prisoner should be refused only in exceptional circumstances. The position of grandchildren and grandparents, who do not currently fall within this definition, is being considered as part of the Prison Service's current review of visits policy.
