asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the estimated weekly cost of retaining the three prisoners in the special control unit at Wakefield.
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply to his Question on 8th May about annual costs—[Vol. 891, c. 496]. The same estimating difficulties apply to weekly costs.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if in view of the curtailment of public expenditure, he will recommend that the control unit at Wakefield Prison be closed.
No, but we keep the position under continuing review.
