To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether his Department plans to close HM Prison Bristol.
18 January 2016
On 9 November 2015, the Chancellor and Secretary of State announced their intention to build a prison estate which allows prisoners to be rehabilitated, thereby enabling them to turn away from a life of crime. This will involve building nine new prisons and closing old and inefficient prisons.
No decisions have yet been made on which prisons will be closed.
