asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if Duke Street Prison, Glasgow, has now ceased to be used for prison purposes: and if the buildings will be demolished and the site made available to Glasgow Corporation.

Duke Street Prison will be vacated as soon as alternative accommodation for the women prisoners is available. In intimating to Glasgow Corporation my recent decision on the Glasgow Development Plan, I asked the Corporation to submit revised proposals for the Townhead-Glasgow Cathedral area, which includes the prison site. The disposal and ultimate use of the site will be considered in connection with these proposals.
