asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has completed his consideration of the proposals made by Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons for England and Wales in his report for 1981.

The position of the Government on the main issues raised in the report of Her Majesty's Chief Inspector and the action being taken to resolve them is set out in the foreword to the report. Consideration of the report's detailed proposals has now been completed and I am placing in the Library of the House a commentary by the prison department on each of the points raised by Her Majesty's Chief Inspector.
