HC Deb 23 January 1996 vol 270 c185W
Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to announce the site for the new private prison; and if he will make a statement. [10299]

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

No final decision about the site for the new privately financed prison has yet been made and a number of options are still under consideration. I expect that an announcement will be made in the near future.
