answer text <p>The Government is committed, as set out on the 26 June at the Justice Select Committee and in the 2017 manifesto, to building up to 10,000 modern and decent prison places to replace old, expensive and unsuitable accommodation. This was reaffirmed by the Chancellor in the 2018 Budget, committing the Government to delivering the first two new prisons at Wellingborough and Glen Parva through public capital. Funding routes will be explored, including through private investment, for the delivery of the remaining prison places. The financing models, timetable and costs for these will be dependent on the relevant value for money and affordability tests, planning permissions and commercial negotiations.</p><p> </p><p>We believe in a balanced approach to custodial services provision, which includes a mix of public, voluntary and private sector involvement. This approach has been shown to work, providing excellent services for the public and value for money for taxpayers.</p> more like this

answer text <p>As set out in my response to PQ178535, one of the measures Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) implemented after stepping in to run HM Prison Birmingham was to temporarily reduce the operational capacity by 300 places. The capacity reduction was not immediate and was delivered over time with the gradual reduction of the prison’s population through a combination of: end of sentence releases, diversion of court allocations to other prisons in the region and routine allocations of sentenced prisoners to other establishments as part of their sentence progression as is normal for a prison with a ‘local’ function.</p><p>Men who were transferred were subject to the same criteria as all prison moves, taking into account a range of factors such as security category, resettlement needs and release address, offending behaviour needs and personal circumstances.</p> more like this
