To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, when she plans to announce the sites for the Prisons Investment programme.

We are investing £1.3 billion to reform and modernise the prison estate to make it more efficient, safer and focused on supporting prisoner rehabilitation. We will build new prisons and close prisons that are in poor condition and those which do not have a long-term future in the estate.
We are currently considering sites for new prison places and will set out plans shortly.
