Lucy Frazer – 2020 Comments on New Glen Parva Prison

The comments made by Lucy Frazer, the Prisons Minister, on 2 September 2020.

The new jail at Glen Parva is another milestone in our plan to transform the prison estate, providing the environment needed to steer offenders away from crime.

As well as rehabilitating prisoners and keeping the public safer, the prison will be a major boost to the local economy. Hundreds of jobs will be created during and after construction, sending a clear signal that this government is committed to supporting communities and infrastructure across the country.
