Select Committee on Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Forty-Third Report


Memorandum by the Home Office

PRISON (AMENDMENT) (NO. 2) RULES 1998 (S.I. 1998/1544)

The Committee have raised the following question.

  Does the Department (in view of the numerous amendments to the principal Rules (S.I. 1964/388)) intend to produce an early consolidation?

The Department recognises that in view of the number of amendments that have been made to the Prison Rules 1964 it would now be desirable to produce a statutory instrument which consolidates the rules. The Department plans to do so later this year.
