§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how big the large cells in Winson Green are which are now accommodating four prisoners; and what is the average size of a single cell accommodating three prisoners in Her Majesty's prisons generally.
§ Mr. John
The capacities of the three cells in Her Majesty's Prison, Birmingham are, respectively, 1,168 cubic feet, 936 cubic feet and 954 cubic feet. Infor-144W mation is not readily available about the sizes of cells in other prison service establishments in which three persons are accommodated, but no cell may be used for such a purpose unless it has been properly certified as suitable.
