asked the Home Secretary whether he will state the total number of hours which were due to the discipline staffs in the English prison and Borstal services, as at the 1st September last, in lieu of overtime worked, and for which no compensation, either by way of pay or time off in lieu, had at that date been given?

The total number of hours due on the 1st September last was 4,241, in respect of which the officers concerned have received, or will receive, either equivalent leave or overtime pay. On that date there were some 2,200 officers in the service liable for duties which might involve overtime, and the average number of accumulated hours worked overtime was accordingly about two per officer.
