Ashwell Prison

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice with reference to the answer to the hon. and learned Member for Harborough of 11 November 2009, Official Report, columns 262-63W, on Ashwell Prison, when he expects (a) the police investigation regarding the incident at HM Prison Ashwell in April 2009 and (b) the strategic review of HM Prison Ashwell to be completed. (300806)

The police investigation into the serious incident at HMP Ashwell is a matter for Leicestershire police. I understand that their investigation is continuing.

A strategic review of Ashwell is well under way and I will report to the House once further decisions have been taken.
