Amazing MoJ logic. Chris Grayling wants exta prison spaces in the already overcrowded system and yet it is reported this morning that the empty Reading Prison is costine 20k every month to maintain. A great example of the sensible logic pervading the Ministry of Justice. When will management of that department be given over to people who apply common sense rather than nonsense? It is just ludicrous, why not refurb Reading at a fraction of the cost of a new build, recruit good POA type staff to run it, at least 5-600 places there NOT FOR PRIVATISATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
