HC Deb 17 January 1992 vol 201 c683W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is to be the policy of transfer of prison inmates from privately run prisons to state run prisons; who will decide when such a transfer is to take place; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

Wolds remand prison will hold only unsentenced prisoners. On their receiving custodial sentences, Wolds prisoners will be taken directly from court to the appropriate local prison. Blakenhurst prison is to be a local prison, holding both sentenced and unsentenced prisoners. Arrangements for the transfer to other prisons of sentenced prisoners held at Blakenhurst will be set out in the invitation to tender which is in preparation.
