To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects the number of uniformed prison officers at Her Majesty's prison, Wakefield, to reach the agreed staffing levels.

[holding answer 27 April 1990]: On 14 April there were 440 officers (including principal and senior officers and specialists) in post at HMP Wakefield. This was four officers below Wakefield's staffing requirement for 1990–91, although two of the posts are temporary and may no longer be needed.
