HC Deb 19 February 1990 vol 167 c596W
Mr. Heffer

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what sites for new prisons he has considered and rejected in the north-west over the last two years.

Mr. Mellor

During this period the Home Office has considered some 40 possible sites. Only one of these, at Fazakerley, Liverpool, is being actively pursued at present. Discussions on a number of the sites were on a confidential basis, because of commercial considerations, and it would not be right to list all of the sites involved.
