Given the prison budget for the next 3 years has not yet been confirmed, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath (Parliamentary Under Secretary, Ministry of Justice) might care to explain how the Justice Ministry plans to deliver a further 9,500 prison places with [as yet] no extra money.

And in light of the significant fall in overall crime in the last decade, the Justice Ministry should also explain why it feels the need to provide thousands of extra prison places at enormous cost to the taxpayer. Prison doesn't work, evidenced by the high level of recidivism. Is this a sensible use of public money?
