Closure of HMP Magilligan Northern Ireland

You may be aware that the Northern Ireland Prison Service are intending to close HMP Magilligan as part of proposed reforms. This closure will once again affect hundreds of POA members, their families and of course the local community.

Members in Northern Ireland have set up an online petition, which the National Executive Committee are asking you to support.

Please support the members in Northern Ireland by visiting;

or the POA Website at www.poauk.org.uk to access the e-petitions.


Yours sincerely



General Secretary
