Prison Building Programme

10. Mr. Greg Hands (Hammersmith and Fulham) (Con): What his most recent assessment is of progress on the prison building programme. [192762]

[Official Report, 11 March 2008, Vol. 473, c. 139.]

Letter of correction from Jack Straw to Mr. Hands :

I am writing to apologise for an error in the oral answer I gave in response to your Parliamentary Question (192762) about progress of the prison building programme.

The 1,746 figure I gave during Justice Questions on Tuesday 11 March was an earlier calculation of the prison places already provided. However, a further 416 prison places came on stream on Monday 10 March giving a total of 2,162 prison places already provided.

Once again, I apologise for providing you with incorrect information.

I am arranging for copies of this letter and the correct answer to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
