Hull East MP Karl Tuner has criticised cuts to the cities prison service saying he fears for prison officer safety.
Last month the Ministry of Justice announced the C and D wings of Hull Prison, will close leading to 70 job losses.
Both wings are victorian and the government department classed the standard of accommodation as poor. C wing has already closed and D wing will shut next month.
None of the jobs will be compulsory redundancies, but there are concerns there won't be enough officers for the remaining 760 inmates.
