§ 51. Mr. Woodnutt
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will agree to accept in Perth Prison, Mr. Adam Ogilvie, currently a prisoner in Parkhurst Prison, in view of the fact that all Mr. Ogilvie's friends and relations are domiciled in Scotland.
§ Mr. Buchan
No. Prisoners are generally required to serve their sentences in the country where they were convicted. Exceptions are made for first offenders, for those under 21, and for those normally84W resident in Scotland who are serving sentences of one year or more. Mr. Ogilvie does not fall within any of these groups.
