Magilligan replacement to be announced by Christmas?

According to this report by the BBC’s Vincent Kearney, the NI Affairs Committee – whose chairman had criticised the “biased criteria” being used to decide the location of the replacement for Magilligan prison – is to recommend building that replacement on the site of the current jail. And the same report predicts that, with 4 of the 5 options under consideration involving building at that site, NI Prisons Minister, Paul Goggins, MP, is about to announce his decision to do just that.
