Prisons: Consecrated Buildings

Volume 684: debated on Thursday 20 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What consecrated buildings or land are used by the Church of England in prisons or detention centres.[HL6986]

There is no consecrated land on the prison or immigration estate. There are no consecrated buildings in the immigration estate. It is possible that a very few prison chapels may have been consecrated, but information on this would need to be obtained from local Church of England diocesan records.
