§ Mr. Cormack
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the cost of escorting an inmate of Her Majesty's Prison, Liverpool, to Cannock and back.
§ Mr. Carlisle
If the inmate were taken directly to Cannock, the cost excluding the cost of the officers' time would be about £12-£15, depending on the length of time he and his escort were away from the prison. If it were possible to transfer him first to Stafford Prison, under routine arrangements for transferring groups of prisoners, the cost would be under £5.
