§ 41. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in planning the new prison buildings which he contemplates, and in adapting old ones, he will provide not only for prevention of and punishment for crime but also for reformation by training prisoners in scientifically equipped workshops, farms, laboratories and libraries to be, on their release, educated and useful citizens.
§ Mr. Ede
The Prison Commissioners attach great importance to the provision of facilities for training and education for all prisoners whoso sentences are long enough to enable advantage to be taken of such facilities and who are likely to benefit by them. It is the intention in planning new establishments to develop, as much as possible, provision of this kind.
