asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether a change of clothes is available to defendants remanded in custody at Risley remand centre before they appear in court.

In accordance with the prison rules, defendants remanded in custody at Risley remand centre are taken to court in their own clothing or, if necessary, in clothing provided by the remand centre. In most cases they are able to change their clothes just before they appear in court but where this is not possible arrangements can be made for fresh clothing to be brought into the remand centre from outside. If the hon. Member is concerned about a specific case and will send me the details, I should be happy to look into it.
