The correct answer should have been:

The Coalition government legislated for secure colleges and we are now considering the next steps.

Estimated sSpend up to and including 30 April 2015 on the Secure College pathfinder was £1.56m resource (mainly expenditure on staff pay and procurement) and £4.04m capital (mainly design fees and site preparation costs). These figures are subject to review by the National Audit Office in January 2016.

No additional costs would be incurred in the event that the pathfinder did not go ahead. The design work produced for the pathfinder could be used or adapted for various other forms of adult or youth custody. The prepared site at Glen Parva could be used for a range of developments.
