asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the present number of parking spaces (a) for staff and (b) for visitors at (i) Risley remand centre and (ii) Strangeways prison.

At Risley remand centre 304 parking spaces are available for staff and 66 for visitors. At Strangeways prison, Manchester, a total of 180 parking spaces are available for staff (27 within the main prison and 153 on a temporary basis on the adjacent fenced Croft site); there is at present no official parking space available for visitors, although street parking is available for up to two hours and there are local authority car parks in the area. Future car parking arrangements at Strangeways prison will be considered in the context of the planned major redevelopment of the establishment.
