New Private Prisons

EDM number 1484 in 2017-19, proposed by Liz Saville Roberts on 04/07/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Prisons.

That this House notes the Government's announcement that two new prisons are to be built in Wellingborough and Glen Parva; expresses alarm that the Government intends for both these prisons to be run by the private sector; expresses further alarm that companies under investigation by the Serious Fraud Office for overcharging the Ministry of Justice will be allowed to bid for contracts to run these prisons while HM Prison and Probation Service will be excluded; believes that it is economically illiterate, socially irresponsible and morally indefensible to let the private sector profit from incarceration in this way; and calls on the Government to commit to ensuring that all new prisons are run by the public sector.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
