On Friday, Pauline McNeill (Glasgow) (SCLAB) asked the Scottish Government what the average daily population of HMP Castle Huntly has been in each year since 2010.
Here are the data:
Castle Huntly’s capacity is 285.
So, HMP Castle Huntly has been consistently below capacity for the last 10 years and has currently 34% spare capacity. This will have been a disappointment to McNeill who is working with the BBC and Liam McArthur on the latest Disclosure project, following on from their piece in January (below), provisionally title: ‘We don’t want the vote, we want smart TVs yah cnut!’
After their previous experience following the wrong lorry-load of wee calves all the way to Spain, the Disclosure Fiat has been fitted with satnav so they don’t end up at the wrong prison.
