Mr. Peek, in the Contemporary Review, on Prisons

Mr. Peek, in the Contemporary Review, on Prisons.

The Committee desire to refer, with grateful satisfaction, to a valuable paper upon the general subject of English Prison administration, by their esteemed colleague, Mr. Francis Peek, which appeared in the Contemporary Review for July, 1884, entitled "Official Optimism.—Prison Reports. "It has been favourably noticed by influential journals, and merits attentive perusal. With a fair and courteous disposition to the authorities, but in plain-spoken terms, it points out the unreliability of the British Official Reports on Prisons, as hitherto prepared and published, also the chief defects of the existing system of Prison Administration.
