Post UK will need 7 new prisons to house EU criminals

Vote Leave research calculated if net migration continued at its current pace, the UK’s already over-crowded prison system would need an extra 7,226 places by 2030, including nearly 4,000 just for EU migrants.

Housing the extra European criminals alone would take seven more prisons the size of Yorkshire’s 606-place Full Sutton prison.

It would take more than £400million to create the new places plus another £145million each year to look after them.

Vote Leave’s forecasts equate to a near-doubling of the current EU offender population in our jails, currently numbering around 4,200.

A recent report from MPs on the Home Affairs Committee warned that the government’s failure to deport foreign national offenders quickly meant thousands were taking up space in our jails or walking free on Britain’s streets.

Pro-Brexit Tory MP and former Cabinet Minister Iain Duncan Smith said: “Our prisons already hold over 4,000 criminals from the EU, costing taxpayers more than £150million a year.

“The problem will only get worse if we stay in the EU, especially as Turkey, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia and Montenegro join.

“Our analysis shows UK taxpayers will have to pay an extra £400million just to keep EU criminals in jail.

“It will mean prisons are more crowded, less safe and less able to prevent inmates returning to crime.

“If we vote to leave, we can take back control of our borders and send EU criminals back to their own countries. “We will be able to keep out terrorists and kick out criminals.
