Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones, has welcomed plans to build a 'super' jail in Wrexham, north Wales.
He said: "The construction of this much needed facility will bring with it considerable economic benefits for local businesses, and create up to 1,000 employment opportunities across the region.
"It will facilitate the rehabilitation of offenders by making them more accessible to their families, legal advisers and the probation service, enabling a smoother transition back into the community."
