To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund was used to finance the construction of a £700,000 prison wing in Nigeria; and if so, for what purpose.

The British Government is supporting a wide programme of reform to Nigeria's criminal justice system. Progress in the construction of a new wing at Kiri Kiri Prison in Nigeria using funding from the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund has been delayed. While £750,000 was initially allocated to this project, only £14,000 has been spent so far on scoping and design. The UK continues to support Nigeria's criminal justice system through other activities.
