§ 64. Mr. Wade
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to provide better conditions and ensure separate accommodation for girls remanded in custody under the age of 21 years and those over that age and for girls on remand for the first time and those who have previously served prison sentences.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Care is taken, by segregation so far as is practicable and by careful supervision, to prevent girls remanded in prison being subjected to harmful influences; but the number is too small to allow of the complete separation of different classes to the extent suggested by the hon. Member.
