HMP Hatfield, Lindholme and Moorland

Please find enclosed a POA press release and Written Ministerial Statement from The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice (Rt. Hon. Chris Grayling).

The POA National Executive Committee welcome this announcement which we believe is the correct decision and consistent with our submission to both NOMS and Ministers.

Our members of those three establishments have faced months of uncertainty and we are pleased that a way forward that keeps them in the public sector has been found.

The POA will continue to campaign for prisons to be in a public sector prison service, HMP Birmingham and HMP Northumberland cannot and will not be forgotten and we will continue our campaign on their behalf.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
