Princess Royal Hospital Telford: Proposed Prison: Port Talbot — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: develop a second mega-prison, which Wales does not need or want—this time in the south. The new prison planned in Port Talbot will hold up to 1,600 prisoners.

There is a distinct possibility that HMP Port Talbot is being built in anticipation of...

Policing and Crime Bill - Report (2nd Day) (7 Dec 2016)

Lord Moynihan: ...noble Lords who took part in this debate. I hope it is not too mischievous to point out that over the last 30 years—I think it is about 30 years since I was Minister for Sport and had the first review of this matter—we have had a whole range of reviews. I welcome that Tracey Crouch announced a further review nearly a year ago, but it is unfortunate that the timing of its...

As far as criminalisation is concerned, the review is continuing and we will report on it....
