Bail Accommodation and Support Services: Milton Keynes

Volume 487: debated on Monday 2 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) when he expects the second bail hostel planned for Milton Keynes to be operational; and what its capacity will be; (253164)

(2) what the capacity of the bail hostel in Milton Keynes is.

I take the hon. Member to be referring to the accommodation and support service for bail and Home Detention Curfew provided to NOMS by ClearSprings. The service does not provide hostels. There is currently one property in Milton Keynes with three places. A second three bed roomed property is being sought. It is not possible to predict by when a property will be found and brought into use.
