WRAP media release - 20 June 2020
Mayor calls for jail debate
This media release was issued in response to Patrick Gee's newspaper article (The Mercury, 20 June 2020).
WRAP (Westbury Region Against the Prison) welcomes the Mayor's call for a debate on the new prison site and the decision-making process leading up to it.
"We have always welcomed a public meeting," said Linda Poulton (WRAP President). "This reflects everything we've called for over a long time.
"We would agree to the Mayor's call for a debate, but our preference would be for a discussion that brings the entire community together in an open forum.
"We look forward to hearing from the Mayor, should he choose to go down that path."
