The Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has explained a decision to move a prison security contract to the public sector:
The cost of running our prisons is too high and must be reduced.
That is why I have decided to take a new approach to how we compete prison services and reduce unit costs across the prison estate.
This is a challenge the public sector must rise to. The approach I am announcing today does not rule out further prison-by-prison competitions in the future.
