§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has any proposals to build a prison at Saltney Ferry, Clwyd, north Wales; if he is considering any other sites in the county of Clwyd; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
The construction of a prison at Wrexham was included in the prison building programme in 1986. Clwyd county council has recently proposed two sites in other parts of the county, of which Saltney Ferry is one. No decisions have been taken about these sites, which are said to be discussed shortly with the county council.
