star this property answer text <p>The Department is currently working on allocating the exact split of the additional £52m investment across its estate, including how much will be assigned to improve safety and security. Consequently, we do not yet have the level of detail split by prison.</p><p>We have committed to spending £30m on improvements to the safety and decency of our prison estate, enhancing security and tackling drugs through roll out of body scanners, and accelerating our digital capability which includes development of mobile phone blocking technology. This is on top of the £40m announced over the summer, meaning a total of £70m is already being directed to tackling drugs and violence, and improving the basic conditions of our prisons. including targeted investment in our 10 priority prisons, which includes six prisons in Yorkshire.</p> more like this
