asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what expenditure was incurred under plans for a special control unit at HM Prison, Wormwood Scrubs; and whether these facilities will now be used.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if construction of the special control unit at Wormwood Scrubs Prison has been abandoned.
£10,500. The bringing into operation of the control unit at Wormwood Scrubs has been deferred indefinitely. I am considering the possibility of using the accommodation either to ease overcrowding at Wormwood Scrubs or to provide an additional facility, such as exists in some other establishments, for the separate accommodation of prisoners removed from association for their own protection under Prison Rule 43.
