After figures showed 89 prisoners were missing from Ford open prison in Sussex, local MP Nick Gibb expressed concern over how prisoners sent to the institution were chosen.
Mr Gibb, the MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, said: "I'm worried about how prisoners are chosen to be sent to Ford open prison, and that too many are absconding.
"The theory is that these are prisoners who are coming to the end of their sentences and therefore should no longer be at risk of absconding.
"The risk assessment of prisoners who are being sent to Ford open prison is clearly not vigorous enough."
