§ Mr. H. Morrison
Prisoners at Brixton and Walton are allocated in buildings of the cellular type, which is in itself an exceptionally strong form of construction and appears to afford a high degree of protection against blast and against fire risks. Moreover, the staff at these and other establishments are equipped and trained for fire-fighting and other A.R.P. duties. To allow the prisoners to come out of their cells at night would, I am advised, increase rather than decrease any risk to which they may be exposed by air raids and would, of course, create other serious difficulties.
