To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, pursuant to the Answer of 13 December 2018 to Question 200144 on Prisons: Private Sector, what estimate he has made of maintenance costs for each prison establishment in each of the next five years.

We spend in the region of £250m a year on routine and capital maintenance for prisons. Around half of this is for facilities management services via our FM providers. Budgets for next financial year have not yet been agreed, while funding for subsequent years will be settled through the forthcoming Spending Review. I am therefore not able to provide specific costs per prison over the next five years.
