I have no plans to change the regime in the control unit. No prisoners are at present being considered for transfer to the unit, but the accommodation will continue to be available for use should the need arise.

I regret that per cent. of persons found guilty by jury in England and Wales were found guilty by majority verdict. Equivalent figures are not available for "not guilty" verdicts because, in accordance with Section 13 of the Criminal Justice Act 1967, juries are not asked whether a verdict of "not guilty" was a majority verdict.
