Liberal Democrat AM Aled Roberts has welcomed the announcement of a 'super-prison' for North Wales, saying the project could create over a thousand jobs.
This investment will provide a significant economic boost in our region.
When I spoke to the Ministry of Justice and Danny Alexander, it was clear that they were impressed by the business case put forward in favour of North Wales. I, alongside my Welsh Liberal Democrat colleagues, have been working tirelessly with Liberal Democrat Ministers in London to ensure a prison in North Wales would become a reality. Many across north Wales, including the six local authorities, have worked together on this bid and it shows what can be done when we work as a team.
