HC Deb 15 November 1982 vol 32 c15W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, of the £96 million to be allocated in the Chancellor of the Exchequer's autumn statement to law and order programmes, including the police and prisons, how much he estimates is likely to be applied for the modernisation or expansion of Her Majesty's prison, Bedford.

Mr. Mayhew

None; but discussions are starting with the district council at its invitation to acquire land for the limited expansion of this small site.
