To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether each of the three new titan prisons will be privately managed. (264666)

The pre-Budget report (paragraph 6.30), published in November 2008, said that for the next three years only the private sector would be invited to bid for the construction and operation of new build prisons. The Government response to the consultation on large new prisons will be published in due course.
