Inger Hansen says the solitary confinement or dissociation, whatever the term be cruel punishment and inhuman treatment. She joined three prisoners in painting a grim of picture of living alone for 23Va hours a day in a small, bleak room where amenities often are provided only at the whim and convenience of guards. She said the study should de- termine whether the hole is useful as a punishment, is the most efficient way to protect certain prisoners and whether there can be an alternative for the latter point. The recommendation prob- ably is the most dramatic of 11 that Miss Hansen, Van- couver criminal lawyer who was appointed "correctional investigator" for Solicitor- General Warren Allmand last year, made in her first annual report tabled in the Commons Monday. Another that could become highly controversial calls for appointment of an outsider to preside over in-prison dis- ciplinary hearings and to determine guilt or innocence of prisoners. The others call for: in laws and regu- lations concerning earned re- mission (time off for good be- statutory remission (serving the last third of a sentence on the outside) and temporary absences. These are expected to be covered in legislation that Mr. Allmand will submit to Parliament shortly. or an end to prac- tices under which prisoners must forfeit property. of a lawyer to examine, adjust and make recommendations for changes in the disposition of prisoner claims for injuries or loss of property. Miss Hansen reports serious delays in deal- ing with these claims and many injuries, mainly loss of- fingers, going un- compensated. right for a prisoner to invest his funds outside the prison. At present his funds could be put into the Inmate Trust Fund, the interest from which goes into the Inmate Welfare Fund. Miss Hansen prepared the 85-page study of criminal complaints after visiting every institution in Canada at least once in the last year. Besides doing her own work and dealing with 782 com- plaints from 595 prisoners in more than 35 in- meant 136 visits to con- ducted six special investigations for Mr. Allmand.

Of the 782 cases that came to her office, there was some rectification in 63 cases, not all due to her intercession. There were more than 500 cases she declined to act on for a variety of reasons, such as being outside her terms of reference. Most complaints dealt with transfers or general prison conditions. By far the most came from Millhaven with 90, Prince Albert second with 66. Miss Hansen's recommendations on the hole and disciplinary hearings come after a year in which these things were frequently mentioned after troubles at Millhaven, British Columbia and St. Vincent de Paul in Montreal.
