asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has been asked by PROP to provide any facilities for its public meetings about the disturbance at Hull Prison in 1976; and, if so, what his response has been.
As the House knows, I have appointed the Chief Inspector of the Prison Service to inquire into the cause and circumstances of the disturbance at Hull Prison. In reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Ormskirk (Mr. Kilroy-Silk) on 2nd May I made it clear that the Chief Inspector's report will be published in full as soon as possible.The chairman of the body set up by PROP to hold public meetings on the Hull disturbance has asked the Home Office to provide various forms of assistance for these meetings. These requests included the provision of officers of the Home Office to act as witnesses, and facilities for a session of the PROP meetings to be held in Hull Prison itself. I have every confidence in the thoroughness of the official inquiry that I have commissioned, and consequently these requests have been refused.
