Volume 508: debated on Monday 22 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many people are expected to be employed in the (a) construction and (b) running of the new prison at HM Prison Magilligan. (323323)

It is too early to provide specific answers, but it is estimated that between 150 and 300 people could be working on site, depending on procurement method and stage of construction.
