    37. Superintendent may issue standing orders

    (1) The superintendent of a prison may, with the approval of the chief executive officer, make and issue written standing orders with respect to the management and routine of that prison.

    (2) If there exists any inconsistency between a standing order made by a superintendent and a rule made by the chief executive officer under section 35 or a regulation made by the Governor under section 110, the standing order shall, to the extent of such inconsistency, be read and have effect subject to the rule or regulation.

    (3) The superintendent of a prison shall take such steps as he considers necessary to bring relevant standing orders made by him under this section to the attention of officers, persons visiting the prison, and prisoners confined in the prison.

    (4) The superintendent shall take reasonable steps to have standing orders made under this section, so far as they are relevant to prisoners, made known

    (a) to every prisoner who is illiterate; and

    (b) in a language that he understands, to every prisoner who does not understand English.
