The Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children has had discussions with the UK’s prisons Minister regarding the proposed site for development of a new prison at Baglan, and Welsh Government officials are also having ongoing discussions with Ministry of Justice officials regarding the proposal.
Mae Ysgrifennydd y Cabinet dros Gymunedau a Phlant wedi cael trafodaethau gyda Gweinidog carchardai y DU ynghylch y safle arfaethedig ar gyfer datblygu carchar newydd ym Maglan, ac mae swyddogion Llywodraeth Cymru hefyd yn cael trafodaethau parhaus gyda swyddogion y Weinyddiaeth Gyfiawnder ynghylch y cynnig.
Thank you for that answer, First Minister. As you know, the site that’s been identified by the MOJ is within the ownership of the Welsh Government, and lies next door to a housing estate, a residential care home, a GP resource centre, with four surgeries in there, and other businesses on that industrial estate. It also lies within the enterprise zone, which was established when the threat to Tata was raised last year, with the intention being to grow and invest in businesses.

I’ve met with local businesses and they want to grow, they want to stay, but if they see a prison coming, damaging their growth opportunities, they have told me they will leave Port Talbot and possibly even Wales. Will the Welsh Government reject any bid from the MOJ for that land, and instead invest in building these units, which can allow them to grow, and commit itself to that as it has done elsewhere in Wales?
Diolch i chi am yr ateb yna, Prif Weinidog. Fel y gwyddoch, mae'r safle a nodwyd gan y Weinyddiaeth Gyfiawnder ym mherchnogaeth Ll
