§ Mr. LOUGH
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has noticed that the Chairman of the London Quarter Sessions has condemned the accommodation for prisoners at the Newington Sessions Court in very strong terms; who is responsible for improving this condition of things; and whether he can undertake to see that adequate arrangements are made?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Masterman)
This is a matter for the county authorities. About a month ago the Secretary of State called the attention of the London County Council to the matter. He understands that the Standing Joint Committee for London will very shortly have before them a report on the subject from a sub-committee appointed to consider it, and will then communicate with the county council, by whom the funds for any improvements have to be provided.
