HC Deb 22 November 1977 vol 939 c621W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many houses remain unoccupied at Her Majesty's Prison, Acklington; and by what date he expects those remaining unoccupied to be occupied.

Mr. John

One hundred and thirty-five. These houses will be progressively occupied by prison staff as the prison develops up to 1983, but consultation is in progress with the local housing author-ties about the possible short-term use of some of them.
