Welsh Secretary David Jones MP says he's confident a strong case can be made for building a proposed 'super-prison' in North Wales.
"We've already engaged heavily with the Ministry of Justice and I've already spoken to the Lord Chancellor and the Prisons Minister about this", he told ITV Wales.
"We will continue to press the case for North Wales, as it is an area of the country that it's already recognised is not properly catered for in the current prison system"
