Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 13 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether HMP Dumfries will be included in the strategic and corporate plans to modernise the prison estate.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 24 November 2017

I have asked Colin McConnell, Chief Executive of the Scottish Prison Service, to respond. His response is as follows:

HMP Dumfries is an integral part of the prison estate for those in our care and will remain so for the foreseeable future. There are no current plans to review the operation of HMP Dumfries.
