To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will re-open HMP Wellingborough to increase prison capacity.
26 June 2014
As this Government has made previously clear, we will not take any steps to dispose of the mothballed HM Prison Wellingborough because it is sensible measure to retain reserve capacity. I have no immediate plans to change that status.
My office will be in touch to arrange a meeting to further discuss this matter further.
