Prisons: Witchcraft

Volume 685: debated on Monday 9 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it is permitted practice to display symbols associated with witchcraft in United Kingdom prisons.[HL7371]

The prison services in England and Wales and Northern Ireland do not have a specific policy on the displaying of symbols associated with witchcraft and is at governors’ discretion. Scottish prisons are the responsibility of the Scottish Executive, who should be approached separately.
