HC Deb 16 January 1992 vol 201 c631W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if privately run prisons will take category A prisoners; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

There are no present plans for contracting out the management of prisons intended to hold category A prisoners: neither Wolds remand prison nor Blakenhurst prison will hold such prisoners.
