Letter from Richard Tilt to Mr. Martin Redmond, dated 17 January 1996:The Home Secretary has asked me to reply to your recent Question about how many additional inmate places will be available for use by the end of 1996 at Doncaster prison.The Certified Normal Accommodation (CNA) at Doncaster prison was increased from 771 to 850 from Monday 20 November 1995 for a period of six months. This is intended to be a short term measure in order to help cope with the current high population levels. When the arrangements cease, it is intended that the CNA will revert to 771.
