HC Deb 18 June 1997 vol 296 c157W
Dr. Brand

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the capital expenditure at Parkhurst prison on the Isle of Wight in each of the past five years; and if the capital expenditure was required to maintain the prison's former category or current category. [4080]

Ms Joyce Quin

Capital expenditure at Parkhurst for the past five years was:

Financial year £000s
1992–93 6,387.7
1993–94 2,583.3
1994–95 12,230
1995–96 9,032.1
1996–97 2,627

Of the £32,560,200 spent on capital projects between 1992 and 1997, £9,600,000 can be directly attributed to security and of this £5,423,000 was specifically spent on maintaining Parkhurst's former category A status.
