To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has received from Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons for Scotland his annual report for 1986 and individual reports on Dumfries prison, Noranside institution and Polmont institution.

I have received Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons for Scotland's annual report for 1986 together with individual reports on his inspections of Dumfries prison, Noranside institution and Polmont institution. I have today placed copies of the reports, including my responses, in the Library, and I am sending a copy to the Members in whose constituencies the establishments are located; and to the chairman of the Scottish all-party penal affairs group and to other interested bodies. Copies may also be purchased from my Department.
