  • Ann Barker (a1)
Extract

The presence of the Official Secrets Acts of 1911 and 1920 precludes comment from doctors working within Her Majesty's prisons on the state of remand prisons in Britain. Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons, Judge Tumin, has described them as “intolerable, and representing much human misery”. In an article entitled ‘Under the prison outrage: a quieter scandal’, Kilroy-Silk (1989) refers to a report implying that, at any one time, one third of remand prisoners suffer from mental illness.
