Wellingborough Prison

Volume 463: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what plans there are to extend the capacity of HM prison Wellingborough; and if he will make a statement. (150307)

There are no firm plans at present to increase the capacity of HMP Wellingborough. However, the National Offender Management Service is considering the potential to build around 50 to 60 additional places at the prison. These proposals do not form part of the current capacity building programme and the development of plans to increase capacity at HMP Wellingborough would be discussed in full with local planners.
