Use public transport

I REFER to Father Patrick Masschelein's letter (South China Morning Post March 13) on the question of a visitor's car-park in the Stanley Prison area.

Given the limited number of parking spaces, it is not possible for the Correctional Services Department to provide parking facilities to the many friends and relatives visiting prisoners in any institutions, including Stanley Prison.

The empty parking slots referred to in Father Masschelein's letter have in fact been allocated to government vehicles and therefore cannot be used for other purposes.

All visitors are advised to use public transport.

PATRICK WONG for Commissioner of Correctional Services
