Scottish Labour disappointed to confirm plenty of space in HMP Castle Huntly

I knew BBC Scotland and Labour were close but are Samantha Poling and Pauline McNeill the same person?

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.

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.
