§ 37 and 38. Mr. Peter M. Jackson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he will make a statement regarding the circumstances under which a prisoner on remand in custody may be detained in a non-remand prison:
(2) if he will make a statement regarding the circumstances under which a prisoner on remand in custody may be required to wear prison clothes and to be confined to cells lighted constantly during the hours of darkness.
§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
A prisoner on remand in custody may be confined in any prison. He may forfeit the privilege of wearing his own clothes if he escapes or attempts to escape. For security reasons he may be required to wear distinguishing overalls over his own clothes when outside his cell. Some prisoners prefer to wear prison clothing as an alternative to the overalls. A dim light may be left on in a cell overnight for purposes of medical observation or security.
