§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith) Official Report, 31 October, c. 381, why he does not propose to allow sentenced prisoners to wear their own clothes.
§ Mr. Brittan
The statutory prison rules require the provision of clothing to convicted prisoners and its wear by them unless my right hon. Friend directs otherwise. We have no plans to change the present arrangements.
