Victoria Atkins – 2021 Comments on New Prison Name in Glen Parva

The comments made by Victoria Atkins, the Prisons Minister, on 10 December 2021.

We want our new, modern prison in Glen Parva to be rooted in its community. That’s why we are extending an invitation to local people to help choose its name.

The prison will create hundreds of jobs when open – giving a major boost to the local economy and helping to protect the public.
